Configuring Workspace Settings

  1. In the Silk Performer menu, click Settings > System .
  2. Click the Workspace tab.
  3. Enable Open the last opened project file on startup to have the last project you worked on opened automatically each time you launch Silk Performer.
  4. Check Always enable all workflow buttons to enable all buttons in the workflow bar. By default, workflow buttons are enabled in sequence based on your progress through the Silk Performer workflow.
  5. Select a Workflow bar type:
    • Full: Displays the full workflow bar, including all workflow steps.
    • Simple: Displays the simple workflow bar. The simple workflow bypasses the baseline concept to make the load testing process quicker and easier.
    • Monitoring: Displays the monitoring workflow bar, including just the workflow steps necessary for monitoring purposes.
  6. Check Enable document file locking. The document file locking mechanism allows multiple users (on Silk Performer Controller machines) to work simultaneously on the same document files (.bdf script files, .bdh include files, data files) without overwriting each other's files. Locked document files from other users can be used in read-only mode, but they can not be edited. This option is enabled by default.
  7. Click Show all dialog boxes to reset any suppressed dialog boxes to their default active state. Certain dialog boxes include a Do not show this dialog again check box. Checking such a checkbox suppresses the dialog box from displaying until the Show all dialog boxes button is clicked.
