Preferences – Alerts & Sounds

This panel lets you control the alert box and lets you assign sounds.

Enable Alert Displays

You can control whether notifications are displayed in different situations. To receive notifications:


Set up to use either Banners or Alerts under OS’s system preferences (page 4). When “Enable alert
displays” is on, X-Lite shows either a banner or an alert for selected situations.


On the Alerts tab, check the situations for which you want to receive an alert.

With “For an incoming Message”, if you check this option, an alert or banner (as specified in the OS)
will appear when you have an IM. If you uncheck this option, the Messages window will appear when
you have an IM.

With other situations, if you check the option, an alert or banner will appear. If you uncheck the option,
no alert or banner will appear.

Assigning Sounds

You can assign specific sounds to a variety of actions or “events”.


Select the Enable sounds check box and select the check boxes for each desired event, or clear the Enable
sounds check box to disable all sounds.


If enabling sounds, you can change the sound for each event: select the individual event. The value in
Sound preference will change. Select the desired sound.

You can import sounds; these will be added to the list of sounds you can choose from when assigning a sound to
an event.
