Under Preferences, you can customize your installation of Tropy in several ways. On macOS, Preferences appears under the Tropy menu. On Windows, it appears under Edit > Preferences.


Default Template: You can set any of your templates to be the default. Whichever template you select will automatically apply to any new items you import (though you can change the templates at any later time).

Duplicate Items: You can select a preference for how to deal with duplicate items upon import. Tropy will detect whether a file with your imported photo's name already exists; you can select how you want to manage any file names that are the same.

Theme: Select light or dark mode.

Locale: Tropy can be used in multiple languages. Select your preferred language. If you do not see the language you prefer to work in, and you would be willing to help us translate Tropy into that language, please join our translation team at Transifex! Tropy currently has locales in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and Spanish.

Interface: The preferences here help you match Tropy's behavior to your typical scrolling behavior.

Export: Tropy can export your notes in either HTML or Markdown. Select which one you'd like from the menu here.

Print: Select your print option here. See more at Print items.
