Open the "Settings" mode via the menu [File -> Settings -> General settings].

General information

Here you can set how often DIALux evo should remind you to save your project and the maximum number of work steps that can be undone.

Furthermore, you can activate the search for evo updates here. 

Language settings

After installation DIALux evo runs in the language of your operating system. Under "Language Settings" you can change the language of the user interface and printout, as well as between the metric and imperial length system. At this point it is also possible to display photometric units in the European system or also in the imperial system.


Here you can specify how many decimal places should be displayed on dimension lines.

You can also activate the automatic creation of isolux lines and value graphics after the calculation. 

Project settings

At this point you can both activate simple street planning for projects and aggregate the EIR/SR calculation for roadways. 

You also specify the project folder where your projects are saved by default. 

Other saving locations

Furniture, materials and layouts are also stored on your hard disk. At this point you can specify the respective storage location. It is only necessary to change the storage locations in exceptional cases.

Calculation settings

Here you can set that obsolete results are automatically discarded and intermediate results are displayed.

Connection Settings

Basically this should work for almost all users in the default setting (system setting).

If this should not be the case, the user has the possibility to switch to a direct connection "No Proxy" (if one exists or is possible) or to set the proxy parameters (server and port) manually. 

If the proxy server used requires authentication, the user name and password can be entered in the login data. When clicking on the login data, the Windows input mask opens.
