Interact Scratchpad offers several preferences that can be used to customize how you access and use the app. Access these preferences via the gear icon in the lower left of the Interact Scratchpad window.
The global shortcut is a keyboard shortcut which can be used to open the Interact Scratchpad from anywhere. The default value is Shift-Command-1, but the shortcut can be change to avoid conflicts with global shortcuts configured in other apps - or just to meet your own preferences.
Launch at Login
Check this box to setup Interact to run automatically whenever you login to your Mac, so it is always there ready to use.
Open Contacts After Creation
When enabled, after a new contact is created, or values added to an existing contact, Interact will open that contact's card in the built-in Mac contacts app. Once you get comfortable with the Interact Scratchpad, or if you do not use the built-in Contacts app, you may wish to disable this setting so the Contacts app is no longer opened.
Clear Text After Creation
When this preference is enabled, after succesfully creating a new contact (or adding the current values to an existing contact), the Scratchpad will clear the text. In most cases this is desireable, but there might be a time when you want to create a series of similar contacts which share information, and it can be useful to disable this feature to allow the text to remain and be reused with a few changes to create additional contact records.
