Maximum number of rows for previews

Limits the number of rows that appear on the Query Preview tab. The default number is 5000.

Keep queries compatible with JMP 12 by default

Specifies the maximum numbers of rows for which unique category levels in the filtered column are retrieved. The minimum value is -1 (no limit). The maximum value is 1 billion. By default, if the categorical column has more than 1 million rows, JMP does not automatically retrieve the unique category levels.

Fallback filter type for categorical columns

Specifies a Contains filter as the default filter type for categorical columns when the number of rows cannot be determined or the query is canceled.
