Properties of a Syllabication Group

"The properties window of a syllabication group is the customization tool for the syllables belonging to the chosen group. This window consists of four tabs: General, Syllables, Alias, and Advanced.

The General tab contains basic information about the selected group. In particular, you can view and modify the reference language of the syllabication group. Additionally, there are two options related to the loading of the syllabication group into memory. Specifically, you can choose to load the entire syllabication group into memory during Biblos startup, or make it available for read-only. These options can be useful for managing particularly large or infrequently used syllabication groups, reducing the impact on the software's performance.

The Syllables tab allows you to view and customize the syllables of the group. You can add, modify, or delete syllables to adapt them to the syllabication of the group's language. Additionally, there is a search field that instructs the software to display the desired syllables. The search allows the use of the wildcard character "*". For more information on using the wildcard character, refer to the dedicated chapter.

The Alias tab allows you to create aliases for characters with replaceable diacritic symbols during syllabication, replaced by normal characters. Adding alias characters avoids repeating the insertion of syllables with these characters, for languages that use characters with specific accents or diacritics. Therefore, you can add or remove desired aliases.

The Advanced tab provides access to the advanced settings of the selected syllabication group, allowing you to discover the storage path, fragmentation level, creation date, and last modification date. Additionally, an excessively fragmented group can be defragmented.
