Checking Droplet Settings

This section describes several ways to check and adjust Droplet settings.

“Show window on startup” Checkbox

The “Show window on startup” checkbox at the bottom of the Droplet window determines whether or not a Droplet window opens when a batch is dragged to a Droplet icon. If it is selected, the Droplet window opens when you drag a batch to the Droplet icon, and you can view the Droplet settings.

If this checkbox is not selected, double-click the Droplet icon to open its window and see the settings.
