On the ISPF Settings panel you can alter your ISPF session defaults. The MainView Batch Optimizer user interface offers direct access to ISPF settings so that you can enable or disable the Tab to action bar choices or Tab to point-and-shoot fields features. You can use the Command line at bottom option or the Long message in pop-up option to change the Command line or message placement, respectively.


Changes made on the ISPF Settings panel apply to your ISPF session as well as your MainView Batch Optimizer dialog session.
