Set Application Offline: A useful feature for when you don’t want to use up your mobile data. Just flip the switch to ‘ON’ to work in offline mode.

Right-handed menu: The main navigation menu is on the left side by default. Use this to switch it to the right side of the screen.

Show Connection Warnings When Offline: BlogPad Pro warns you whenever you try to save a post and have either lost your internet connection OR have set the application to offline. Switch this to OFF if you don’t want to see these warnings. This setting can be disabled by clicking on ‘Don’t Show Again’ on one of the warning alerts but can only be re-enabled by going into General Settings.

Show Hints: Switch this to OFF if you don’t want to see helpful hints and tips. 

Show Autosave Operations: A message appears in the top right corner of the screen whenever BlogPad Pro does an autosave. Switch this to OFF to hide these messages.

Show Memory Warnings: Sometimes IOS sends apps warning messages when the system is running low on memory. IOS can sometimes ‘crash’ an app if a device is running too low on memory, so a memory warning is a good reminder to save your work.  Switch to OFF to hide these messages.

TextExpander Touch Support enabled: Set to ‘OFF’ if you don’t want to be able to use your TextExpander Touch shortcodes in your blog posts and pages.

Host Timeout Interval (seconds): This setting shows how long we are allowing before timing out on a web request. You may want to set this value to a higher value if you server is running slowly (perhaps because you have lots of plugins). The maximum permissible value for this is 30 seconds.

Default Font Size for Visual Editor: This setting changes the size your text displays within the visual editor on BlogPad Pro. It doesn’t affect the size of the font on your blog.

Language for Application: Change the language of the menu options in BlogPad Pro.

Spell Check Language for Visual Editor: Select the language for your spell check. For example, if you are writing your blog posts in Italian, select Italian for the spell-check language.
