aTbRef update - Preferences
Dec 12th, 2012, 11:26am
Prompted by discussion here, I've reviewed, re-writted and re-screengrabbed all of the Preferences section and links to from it. I hope it makes the whole app vs doc level issue and values inheritance a bit clearer.

It was a bigger task than I though and posed an interesting export challenge as some pages are TB aliases and yet app (original) and doc (alias) HTML pages need different grabs.  In the end, each page stores 2 image names in separate user attributes and the template checks ^if($IsAlias==true)^ to choose the correct image to which to link.  Another example of TB's export versatility!

Errors & omissions are welcomed (either here or email me).
