Profile Specifics

(Updated 2017-7; BallroomDJ version 3.13.5)

This information is subject to change and may not be up to date

The various options available in BallroomDJ may apply globally to all profiles, may apply only to a particular profile, or may be set on a per-machine basis (for networked configurations or mobile configurations).

When a new profile is created, the settings from the parent profile are inherited.

If a non-global option is changed, you will need to check that option in the other profiles and on other machines.


Global: A global option is applied for all profiles and for all machines.

Profile: A profile option is specific to the particular profile that has been selected.

Machine: An option that is saved on a per-machine basis.

Machine/Profile: An option that is saved on a per-machine, per-profile basis.
