LoadLastTestOnStartup: If set to True, Rapise will open the last test you worked on and saved.  If set to False, Rapise will create a new test named MyTest<#> where <#> is an integer.  A folder for MyTest<#> is created in the folder specified by the DefaultFolder option.


NormalizeFileName: If set to True, files are referred to (in the *.sstest file) using a a path relative to the *.sstest file.  Otherwise, their absolute path is used.


RecentTests: The maximum number of recent files displayed in the Recent Tests list.  To see the Recent Tests list, open the Application Menu:

options dialog, recent projects


Remember Debugger Layout: If True, Rapise will remember the window layout for debug mode separately. For example, this may be useful if you want to work full screen while authoring the Test and half-screen to debug. This way the AUT and the Rapise debugger fit on the screen.


ShowDashboardOnStartUp: If True, the Spira Dashboard will open automatically when Rapise is opened.


ShowStartPageOnStartUp: If True, the Start Page will open automatically when Rapise is opened.


StyleLibrary: determines the color scheme of the Rapise window.  If you click on StyleLibrary, you'll notice that a drop down arrow appears to the right.  Press the arrow to see all of the Style options:
