Features

The settings are divided into two sections.

Sorting Options

Ignore Prefixes

This setting affects the item list screen and how items are sorted. When ON then prefixes entered under Ignored Prefixes will be ignored for the purposes of sorting the value. When OFF then no part of a value is ignored for the purpose of sorting.

Ignored Prefixes

This is the user supplied list of prefixes to ignore when sorting item values. By default this list includes the words a, an, and the which are typically ignored in English when sorting. Add or change the prefixes to suit your needs or your language. Prefixes such as l' (French, for example) are also supported.

Feature Options

Pictures Size

By default any pictures added through MyStuff2 will be kept in their original size. If you have many pictures created by using a high resolution camera, such as on the iPhone 4, then your data will start to take up more storage space. This will make export and backup files very large. This can slow down iTunes synching. And it can slow down MyStuff2 when viewing items containing several large pictures. Use this option to tell MyStuff2 to use smaller sized pictures. If you choose a smaller size, MyStuff2 will give you the chance to have all existing pictures made smaller. Unless you have a backup of your data, this can't be undone. Note - pictures will never be made larger than their current size.
