InfoWater Pro preferences are used to control system default settings and project preferences. The settings in the Preferences dialog box are grouped into categories as tabs. For example, in the Default Symbol tab, you can adjust the default shape, size, and color of symbols used to represent InfoWater Pro elements, such as junctions, tanks, and pipes in the map display.
