The GUI web application allows to configure some user properties to change the way a user interact with the ui:

User Preferences

You can access the User Preferences modal by clicking on the down arrow next to your user name and on the User Preferences item.

The preferences are:

Global Preferences

Configuration Page Preferences

  • Display names in the component title: Whether to display the component name in the component title or in the body. The default value is false.
