8.3. Registry Parameters

The settings in the following table can be adjusted in Windows Registry Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Veodin\SlideProof. For larger deployments they can be deployed via Group Policy Objects:

Parameter Description
RibbonKeytip By default the SlideProof Ribbon will be accessible with the Shortcut Alt+P. To modify the shortcut set a registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Veodin\SlideProof\RibbonKeytip String to “X”. Afterwards if the Shortcut is set to “Y1” then pick a different shortcut as your chosen one is already used by PowerPoint. Example .reg file
LibraryCachePath By default the SlideProof library cache is stored in the user AppData folder. With this key you can modify your cache folder and move it to other location (shared with all users, for example)
Library_IsReadOnly By default SlideProof allows publishing of own material. Set this to Integer “1” to hide the “Publish” button and prevent publishing. Alternatively restrict write access to the Library folders.
LibraryPath_<Name> By default SlideProof provides you with 3 library paths as described above. In order to get additional, custom library paths, add the keys starting with “LibraryPath_<Name>” to the Registry. For example add “LibraryPath_Division” with “https://company.sharepoint.com/division” to have a new entry that’s labeled “Division”. You can have many Custom Library paths.
CustomColors By default SlideProof will try to find custom colors named “Custom Color 1” to “Custom Color 16”. If you have custom color names in your Slide Master Theme you may specify them as a Multi-String Value in the Windows Registry so they may appear in the Colors Pane and be valid for proofing. Make sure you insert a line break between each color you want to add. For example “Color 1 <linebreak> Color 2”.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Para meters\AuthForwardServerList: YOUR SHARING LOCATION Comma separated list of WevDAV locations that Windows can automatically authenticate to.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MRxDAV\Para meters\FileInformationCacheLifeTimeInSec 0 Number of seconds a file information is cached.
