How to Customize General Settings in BizTalk Mapper


You can change the default settings of certain view options in a map. These settings would be available to you whenever you open Visual Studio. This topic provides information on such options.

You can also set the default settings for colors and fonts. For information on how to choose the settings, see How to Customize Colors and Font in BizTalk Mapper.
