HTML Suite Properties

With HTML Suite Properties you can control how Suite Reports will appear. You can choose colors and fonts for different parts of the report and save all of them together as a scheme. You can save an unlimited number of different schemes. All reports will display with the same properties for a uniform look. Turn Suite Properties on by using BallStat Properties and clicking the HTML tab.
