Configuring StudioX Settings

Configure StudioX settings from the Settings tab in StudioX Backstage View.


Configure General Settings

Configure general StudioX settings by selecting General in the Settings tab.

The following settings are available:

  • Language- Change the language of the StudioX and Robot user interfaces by selecting one of the available languages from the Language drop-down menu: English, Japanese, French, Russian, Chinese (Simplified), German, Spanish (Spain), Spanish (Mexico), Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Korean, or Turkish.
  • Theme - StudioX comes with two themes, Light and Dark. Change the theme from the Theme drop-down menu. You must restart StudioX for the changes to apply. If you select the High Contrast option from the Windows operating system, StudioX switches to High Contrast mode after you restart it.
  • Telemetry - Select whether to allow Studio to collect and send anonymous usage data. For more information, see Opting Out of Telemetry in the Installation and Upgrade Guide.
  • Reset Settings - Revert StudioX settings to their default values by clicking Reset Settings. This does not reset settings for activities packages sources.
    The following settings are reverted to their default state:
    • All the settings in the General and Design sections of the Settings tab.
    • The list of recent projects in the Start tab.
    • StudioX layout.
    • The update channel, which is switched to Stable.

Configure Design Settings

Configure design settings by selecting Design in the Settings tab. These settings apply to all projects you open in StudioX.

The following settings are available:

  • Save and Publish
    • Auto backup interval - Set a regular interval at which projects are automatically saved. This is useful for restoring the last saved copy of the workflow. The default value is set at 30,000 milliseconds. The minimum value is 10,000 milliseconds, while the maximum one is 9,999,999 ms.
    • Publish project timeout - Set the timeout value for publishing projects. The default value is 30 seconds. The maximum timeout is 999,999 seconds, while the minimum one is 1 second.
    • Open Project Behavior - Select what tabs you want to be loaded when you open a project: No Tabs (the default selection), Keep Last Opened Tabs, or Open Main Entry Point.
    • Enforce Analyzer before Publish - Select this option to prohibit publishing projects with Workflow Analyzer errors.
    • Enforce Analyzer before Run - Select this option to prohibit running projects with Workflow Analyzer errors.
    • Enforce Analyzer before Push/Check-in - Select this option to prohibit sending projects with Workflow Analyzer errors to remote repositories.
    • Analyze RPA XAML Files Only - Select this option to exclude XAML files with test cases from analysis when running the Workflow Analyzer for a project. If not selected, both RPA and test case XAML files are analyzed. This setting applies when the analyzer is triggered manually, as well as when it is enforced and triggered automatically before running a project and publishing test cases or a project.
    • Export Analyzer results - Select this option to export all Workflow Analyzer results to a local file.
    • Use "Smart File Path" - Select this option to use relative paths instead of absolute paths for file locations from the user profile folder so they work when shared with other users.
    • Enable line numbering - Select this option to allow or restrict the use of line numbering in the designer.
    • Enable AI activity suggestions - Select this option to enable or disable AI activity suggestions in the Add activity search bar. If this option is enabled, when you open the activity search bar, StudioX sends information about the current context to a UiPath AI service that suggests activities you may want to add based on the location in the workflow from which the search bar was opened.
      :information-source: Note: The service does not collect or record any information, it only analyzes the current context and returns a list of suggested activities.
    • Enforce Check-In before Publish - Select this option to prohibit publishing the project when there are local changes.
  • Execution
    • Output console size - Set the maximum number of lines that can be displayed in the Output panel in a single session. The default value is 2,000 lines. The maximum value is 9,999 lines, while the minimum one is 1 line.
    • Minimize on run - Use the toggle to select if the StudioX window should be maximized or minimized when running projects.
  • Design Style
    • Create docked annotations - Select the default way in which annotations are added to activities: docked inside the activity (if the option is selected) or floating next to the activity (if the option is not selected).
    • Default to managed connections - Select this option to use the Integration service in Automation Cloud as the default way to manage connections in all activities that support it. This option is enabled by default if the Integration service is available in the Orchestrator tenant that StudioX is connected to. When enabled, the activities in the GSuite, Mail. and Office 365 packages that support this feature default to using Integration service connections for authentication.
    • Object Repository enforced - Select to allow only elements from the Object Repository in UI Automation activities.

Configure Locations

Configure the default locations where projects are saved and published by selecting Locations in the Settings tab.

  • Project Path - The default location where projects are created.
  • Publish Library URL - The default location where libraries are published when the custom feed option is selected.
  • Publish Process URL - The default location where processes are published when the custom feed option is selected.
  • Publish Project Templates URL - The default location where project templates are published when the custom feed option is selected.
  • Custom Workflow Analyzer rules location - The folder from which to add custom Workflow Analyzer rules to Studio. If no location is provided, the default location for custom rules is used.

Manage Sources for Activities Packages

Manage sources for activities packages without having to open a project by selecting Manage Sources in the Settings tab. The options in this section are similar to the ones in the Manage Packages window, which lets you adjust sources per project. For more information, see Managing Activities Packages in the Studio Guide.



The Local package source is enabled by default. The Orchestrator package source is also enabled if the Robot is connected to Orchestrator.

Configure License and Profile

Select License and Profile in the Settings tab to add a local license key or switch to another user profile.

  • To add a new license key when Studio is licensed locally, click Change Local License, enter the new license key, and click Continue.
  • To switch to another profile, click Change Profile, and then select Studio or StudioX.



If you activated a Citizen Developer license, you can only use the StudioX profile.
