Starting with LON-CAPA 2.10, a Domain Coordinator can configure default
settings for courses in the domain. Defaults are of two types:
-\item defaults that can be overridden in an individual course by a Domain
-Coordinator, via the ``View or modify a course or community'' interface.
\item defaults that can be overridden in an individual course by a Course
+Coordinator using Settings -$>$ Course Settings -$>$ Display
+(``Display of resources'' checked).
+Currently, there are two domain defaults of this type:
+\item Student formula entry uses inline preview, not DragMath pop-up
+For problems that require a formula input via a textbox, the default is to
+show the math expression in a previewer below the textbox, as the student types.
+The alternative is to use the older (Java-based) DragMath pop-up which allows
+the student to compose the expression in a WYSIWYG-style editor in a pop-up window
+and then save it to the textbox in the main window using a ``Save and Close'' button.
+\item Molecule editor uses JSME (HTML5) in place of JME (Java)
+For problems that require the student to ``draw'' an organic structure using a
+molecule editor, the default is to use the HTML5 version (JSME). The alternative
+is to use the older (Java-based) JME editor.
-Currently, the interface supports setting of three defaults:
+\item defaults that can be overridden in an individual course by a Domain
+Coordinator, via the ``View or modify a course or community'' interface.
+Currently, there are four domain defaults of this type:
\item responder count - number of responses needed before submissions made to

community, and textbook course types for content uploaded directly to the course.
\item default course credits - whether credits may be specified for courses (Yes/No),
if yes: default values for number of credits for official, unofficial and textbook courses.
+\item submit button behavior post-submission
+The default is for the ``Submit Answer'' button in the current page to be disabled for 60s following
+answer submission. After processing a student's answer a new page is displayed. The setting
+to disable a button, (with or without a timeout), applies to the button in the old page in
+the time period before the new page is loaded by the browser.
