Amazing effort

I wonder about your Preference setting section:
Are these original defaults or your recommendations? (A terse: "why I chose or a link to...?" might be indicated)

OK, in the OP I clarified as follows:
Quote:
Note, My Settings. My current Preference settings are listed below. Some are original defaults, some aren't. The settings in the list are offered as examples of one user's settings, and not as recommendations for new users. These settings have evolved to meet my needs, and I often change specific settings as needed.
If you're suggesting a why/explanation for each and every setting option, that would expand the Preferences section to at least twice the length, probably more. Some of them are just what they are and don't need explanation, some I may not know an explanation. Are there any specific setting options that you think need further explanation?

Edit: And some are explained farther down in relevant section, such as Adding Books.

I might add:
"Look and Feel, Book Details. Unchecked, Roman Numerals—they're not as easy to understand at a glance."
The check box for roman numerals is off to the right and not in the main list of options. Those of us with tunnel vision could spend entirely too much time looking for it without further instruction

(and belated thanks to jlutes. I did add a pointer to where to find those pesky roman numerals.)
