-### Charm Preferences
-Although Charm has been developed under a philosophy to "Simply get it
-right.", everything is not for everybody. Some behaviour of Charm can
-thus be customised.
-### Database Options
-Sometimes, it makes no sense to book time to parent tasks. Instead,
-the parent tasks collate the time of the leaf tasks. Check "only
-record events for tasks that do not have children" to configure that
-behaviour. By default, events can be recorded for all events.
-Then, most of the times it makes sense to only record events for one
-task at a time. Check "only allow one event at a time" for that.
-### Appearance
-The font size of the task tracker can be configured in this tab.
-### Esoteric Options
-Some friends of us are strange folk. That is expected, for they are
-geeks and artists and coders. Since those are known to be very
-professional, efficient people, the options in this tab offer
-enhancements in usability that are quite useful, but not as obvious as
-the other ones. So far, one feature has made it into this category:
-To enter a great deal of events, switching AM/PM is cumbersome. People
-from the US and other countries usually prefer AM/PM time
-formats. Some still prefer to enter 24 hour times, since it is much
-faster. Check "always use 24h time format when editing" to configure
-this. By default it is off.
