Select Tools»Icon Editor Properties from the Icon Editor dialog box to display this dialog box.

Use this dialog box to configure the display and behavior of the Icon Editor dialog box.

This dialog box includes the following pages and components:

  • Templates—Configures settings for saving third-party icon templates.
    • Save third-party icon templates?—Specifies whether to save the icon templates from third-party VIs. If you place a checkmark in this checkbox, when you open a third-party VI, LabVIEW saves the corresponding icon template to the Third-party template directory you specify. LabVIEW saves the template as templateName.png, where templateName is the name of the Icon Template layer for the third-party VI icon. If an icon template of the same name already exists in the Third-party template directory, LabVIEW overwrites the existing icon template.
    • Third-party template directory—Specifies the directory to which you want to save third-party icon templates. Ensure that the directory you specify is within the LabVIEW Data\Icon Templates directory. The directory you specify appears on the Templates page of the Icon Editor dialog box.
  • Layers—Configures settings for using icon layers.
    • Merge all layers on commit—Specifies whether to merge all layers when you close the Icon Editor dialog box. Because LabVIEW saves layer information about an icon with the corresponding VI or library, merging icon layers reduces the size of the VI or library on disk.
  • Text Tool—Specifies the font, alignment, and font size of the text you enter with the Text tool. You also can display this page of the Icon Editor Properties dialog box by selecting Edit»Select Font in the Icon Editor dialog box or by double-clicking the Text tool in the Icon Editor dialog box.
    • Font—Specifies the font of the text you enter with the Text tool.
    • Alignment—Specifies the alignment of the text you enter with the Text tool.
    • Size—Specifies the font size of the text you enter with the Text tool.
