With a project open, you can access and edit project information like Process name, Author, Customer, Department and Process summary here. Changes are automatically saved when switching menu tabs or closing the menu.
Here all your export options are displayed in a second menu section, with a separate exporting view for each export. The current export options are Designer Export, MS Office Export and MS Office Export (Interop) - if you enabled this one under Plug-ins. Details about the exports can be found in Exporting your Project Results.
You can manage loaded plug-ins within the Manage plug-ins section. Enable and disable your plug-ins and get error information when there are problems, e.g. incompatibilities. Currently, the export options are managed as plug-ins and available for enabling and disabling here. Per default, the Interop export is disabled since it is less performant.
