To transfer the changes you made using this screen to the device:

  1. First press OK to save the changes and to exit from this screen.
  2. Write the configuration to the device using "Write configuration" command (File -> Write configuration)

Please note that the DASH4PRO FD unit can also be configured using the unit’s menu. Those menu items with similar functionality are mentioned inside the parenthesis in this screen.
