    44The ''Options...'' menu item opens a dialogue box containing the following features that allow you to set your preferences for using the software. 
     
    1212'''Window layout''' 
    1313 
    14 A feature of the EwE6 is the ability to customize the appearance (layout) of the Graphic User Interface (GUI) by dragging and docking any of the windows (see [wiki:EwEugGeneralFeaturesOfGui General features of the Graphic User Interface]). Checking the Save windows layout box saves changes to the appearance of the GUI for the next time the model is opened. Unchecking the box means that the model will be re-opened with the default layout. You can also set where the layout file is saved by typing it directly or using the browse [] button. Note that a different layout file is saved for each model.

    26 There are two basic choices for the ‘currency’ of your model: energy-related units (which imply a respiration term), and nutrient-related units (which imply no respiration term). Only models constructed using an energy-related currency (t·km2·year-1) can be run under Ecosim and Ecospace.

    28 Selection of the time unit does not influence any of the calculations in Ecopath (except for determining whether Ecosim/Ecospace can be assessed or not, see above). It affects only the labels on tops of the output forms, etc.

See [wiki:EwEugEcotracerParameters Ecotracer parameters], [wiki:EwEugEcotracerInput Ecotracer input] and [wiki:EwEugEcotracerOutput Ecotracer output] for more information about using Ecotracer for contaminant tracing.
