Fonts: Fonts can be customized and fitted to Small, Medium or Large, colored to your preference and given a style of Bold, Italic or Underlined.

Items: The height of the items on the left side menu can be adjusted to Small, Medium or Large and colored to your preference.

Borders: Borders can be colored to give objects an immersive feel and or provide a contrast to the background.

Extension background color: The background of the extension can be colored to your preference.

Sort bar items: The sort bar items can be customized to a color of your preference and separate settings are available for dimensions and measures.

Collapse and Expand Left Menu

The entire left side menu can be set to collapse and expand so you can focus more on the data in front of you (Figure 2). To access this feature, navigate to the Settings menu of the Appearance tab in the property panel. Under the label Left menu display mode, choose Expandable.  

Note: It is possible to start with the left menu hidden, which is useful when using Analytic Search.
