App defaults

These settings are found by clicking the small gear icon in the very top right corner of the Ninja, above the Help and Reset buttons. This button is visible at all times.

App defaults menu

As the name of this area suggests, all of these options are enabled by default. Simply click an item in the list to disable or re-enable it. Each item also has a colour-coded circle on the left - green means it's enabled, red means it's disabled.

Changes to these options will only affect new documents you import to the Ninja. Documents already in the Ninja won't be affected.

Swoosh sound

If this setting is enabled, a a ninja-esque 'Swoosh!' noise plays whenever you switch between the Add your Documents, Choose a Design and Download your Package tabs. Perfect for those of you who are action-oriented!

If this setting is disabled, switching between tabs is silent. If the 'Swoosh!' noise gets annoying after the hundredth time, don't worry, this allows a break for your ears.


Auto-split documents

If this setting is enabled, any multi-page documents (Word docs, spreadsheets, slideshows, PDFs, etc) you import into the Ninja will be automatically split into multiple pages - each page becoming a seperate item in the file list. The first page in the document will also be made a parent page, while any other pages will be indented and set as child pages (though you can still rename, rearrange, or un-indent them at your discretion).

Document splitted

If this setting is disabled, these documents will be kept as a single file and a single page within the course. You can still view the whole document by scrolling up or down. You will also gain access to the Split button, in case you decide to split the document at a later time.

Auto-optimise images

If this setting is enabled, any images you import into the Ninja will be automatically resized and scaled to potentially reduce their file size. This can come in handy if you are importing particularly large files.

If this setting is disabled, images will be imported at their normal file size and dimensions (though they will still scale to fit the course display size when the course is played).

This setting depends on the size of the browser window (Chrome, Firefox, etc) when you import the image - for instance, importing an image into a small window will produce a smaller (and blurrier) image, which may be more apparent when the browser or course is viewed in a normal-sized window!


Auto-centre presentations

If this setting is enabled, any Powerpoint or slideshow documents you import into the Ninja will be automatically centered.

This setting currently cannot be disabled.
