The "application setting" dialog can be reached from the edit pull-down menu at the right top of the screen. A pop-up window will allow the user to customize application behavior.
After starting Slicer, it can be accessed by clicking on menu
Edit -> Application Settings
Skip Loading of
Select which type of modules to not load at startup. It is also possible to start slicer by temporarily disabling those modules (not saved in settings) by passing the arguments in the command line.
Prefer Executable CLIs
Use the executable version of a CLI instead of its shared version. CLI modules typically come in 2 forms, as shared (dll)and as executable (exe). By default, if there is a shared version, it is the one loaded by Slicer, ignoring the executable version. Loading a shared runs the module faster but increases the memory consumption. For some configurations (e.g. Windows 32b), memory is critical. Toggling this option to ON skips the loading of shared CLIs and loads executable version of CLIs instead. If there is no executable for a given CLI, the shared version is used.
Some modules don't have a user interface, they are hidden from the module's list. For debugging purpose, it is possible to force their display
Directory where modules can store their temporary outputs if needed.
Additional module paths
List of directories scanned at startup to load additional modules. Any CLI, Loadable or scripted modules located in these paths will be loaded. Extensions are listed in the list, to remove an extension, use the Extension Manager instead.
List of modules loaded, ignored or failed to load in Slicer. An unchecked checkbox indicates that module should not be loaded (ignored) next time Slicer starts. A text color code is used to describe the state of each module:
If a module is not loaded in Slicer (ignored or failed), all dependent modules won't be loaded. You can verify the dependencies of a module in the tooltip of the module.
You can filter the list of modules by untoggling in the advanced (>>) panel the "To Load", "To Ignore", "Loaded", "Ignored" and "Failed" buttons.
Module that is shown when Slicer starts up.
Extensions can also add their own settings panel.
Information for Advanced Users
Settings are stored in an *.ini file located:
- Windows: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\NA-MIC\Slicer.ini
- Linux: ~/.config/NA-MIC/Slicer.ini
- Mac: ~/.config/www.na-mic.org/Slicer.ini
Deleting the file restores all the settings to default.
