From the Content Templater component view, in the toolbar on the right, you will see the "Options" button.

When you click on that, you will be directed to the Global Configuration options for Content Templater.

Here is an overview of the global configuration settings. All descriptions are available in the tooltips of the options.

Auto Load PRO

Load Delay (secs) When a template is loaded by default (via assignment or URL), the settings will be set via javascript. If you experience the settings not being loaded, increase the delay. This is probably caused by scripts not being ready yet (especially on IE browsers).

Other Settings

Enable Categories Enable to use categories and show the category column in the list view.
Enable Colors Enable to use colors and show the color column in the list view.
Colors A comma separated list of RGB colors to show in the color picker.
Show Update Notification If selected, an update notification will be shown in the main component view when there is a new version for this extension.
Show Copyright If selected, extra copyright info will be displayed in the admin views. Regular Labs extensions never show copyright info or backlinks on the frontend.

User Actions Log

Log User Actions Select to store User Actions. These actions will be visible in the User Actions Log module.
Events To Log Select the actions to include in the User Actions Log.
