Preferences - Diagnostics
The Preferences - Diagnostics dialog box is one of the pages that appears when you choose the Edit > Preferences command on the main menu bar. It allows you to set the global defaults for the diagnostic messages that are issued during a project preflight check or build.
Note: You can fine-tune diagnostic message reporting on a per-configuration basis by clicking the Advanced... button on the package attributes pane.
For more information and a full list of diagnostic messages, see Diagnostic messages.
