Zrythm has a Preferences dialog containing all of the global settings that can be accessed by clicking the gear icon or with Control-Shift-p
Preferences are grouped by sections, such as General and Plugins, and each item in the preferences contains a tooltip that explains what it does.
Zrythm must be restarted for changes to take effect.
The preferences are searchable. You can simply start typing a keyword and results will appear automatically. Clicking on one of the results will navigate to the corresponding item in the preferences.
Below is a list of notable preference items with some comments about them.

Zrythm will ignore input from any devices not explicitly enabled.

Setting this to a very large number will increase the size of project files and it may take longer to save/load projects. We recommend leaving it to the default value.
Zrythm can save backups automatically while working on a project. You can specify the interval to do this, in minutes, under. To disable auto-save, set the interval to 0.

There is an option to reset Zrythm to its default settings under.
