Style: Choose which character styles you would like to study, (traditional, simplified, or both). 
Parts: Enable which parts you would like to study. Changing the setting here (versus the study screen) is a more permanent setting. 
Retention Rate: Adjusting the retention rate affects how many prompts will be scheduled. The lower the target retention rate, the less reviews will be generated, however at the expense of your retention. If in question, it's best to leave this setting at the default target retention rate (95%). 
Add Frequency: Adjusting the "add frequency" setting will affect how fast Skritter automatically adds new words as you study.  
Auto Advance: Enable or disable auto advance. 
Bopomofo: Enabling the Bopomofo option will display zhuyin (bopomofo) instead of pinyin.  
Hide Definition: Enabling the "hide definition" option will hide the definition on any unanswered prompt. You can tap "reveal" at any time to reveal the definition, and it's automatically revealed when the prompt has been finished.  
Hide Reading: Enabling the "hide reading" option will hide the reading n any unanswered prompt. You can tap "reveal" at any time to reveal the definition, and it's automatically revealed when the prompt has been finished.  
Raw Squigs: Enabling the "raw squigs" option will show your own handwriting, instead of each stroke being replaced with Skritter's. Once finished writing, your handwriting will be compared against Skritter's font.  
Teaching Mode: Enabling the "teaching mode" option will automatically guide you through new words or characters added stroke by stroke.
