Define Page Password Key
You specify here the "Key" for this page. This is carried with the page and used in the algorithm that in combination with the UserId and Master Key (entered in the "Compiler Options" dialog) generates the password for the page. Once assigned, if you change this then the generated password will change. You can put anything you like here. Page Password Keys can be reviewed from the "Compiler Options" dialog.
Define Directory Password Key.../" UID "
Similar to the Page Password Key, except this key applies to all the pages in the same directory (but not subdirectories of it!). You can protect groups of pages by arranging them in an appropriate directory structure and using Directory Keys. If you define both a Page and Directory key that apply to the same page then the user will have to enter two passwords, the Directroy Password first. This will probably confuse the user, so is maybe not a good idea.

Regenerate Presentation Identifier
Each presentation you compile acquires a unique identifier (technically a "GUID", if you don't know what one is don't worry, you don't really need to know). This is required to allow different presentations to store their persistent data (favorites, cached passwords etc.) in a unique area without different presentations "clashing". Once a Presentation Identifier is assigned to a presentation, which happens the first time you compile it, it stays with the presentation for life no matter how many more times you compile it. However, there may be circumstances where you wish to compile the same presentation but assign it a new unique Presentation Identifier. This may be because you've created a new version of your presentation which has changed quite substantially and you don't want a user using his previous "Favorites" which may no longer apply for example, or you may wish to force the user to re-enter Userids and Passwords. Selecting this menu item causes the presentation to be assigned a new Presentation Identifier.
Export Presentation Profile
The Compiler Options for a presentation, including passwords, keys, preferences etc. are held in the Registry on the compiling system, and is referenced by a key which contains the home page filename and path. Using this command you can export that information to a file. You will need to do this if you move to a new PC, otherwise you will lose the information related to the presentation. You can then use the Import Presentation Profile command (described below) to recover the information.
Whilst you could type most of it in again (laborious, especially if you use a lot of passwords) you wouldn't be able to type in the Presentation Identifier (see above). That wouldn't be a disaster, but it would mean that a new Presentation Identifier would be generated, requiring re-entry of passwords etc. by the end user, who would also lose his "favorites".
You will also need to export/import if you intend to move your HTML to a new directory structure. Note that you have to export before you move the HTML, then re-import it after you have moved the data.
To export the data simply open the "Home Page" of the presentation in question, select the Export Presentation Profile command and specify the filename in the standard Windows "Save" box.
Import Presentation Profile
This command lets you import a previously exported Presentation Profile for a presentation, after you changed the directory structure of the HTML or moved it to a new system. To import the data, open the "Home" page of the presentation, select the "Import Presentation Profile" command, and select the file required.
