Many connectCAD tools have options and settings that can be accessed by clicking on the ‘spanner-pencil’ icon located just above the top-left corner of the drawing area. These control the default behaviour for the particular tool. The settings are saved in the current document.

The settings of tools like JackField and Term Panel creation tools are also driven from the connectCAD Settings command to allow you manage these settings from a central point.
