Save Merged File - if you check this option then the merged file is saved to a name of your choice and is not erased when you close the session. If not checked, then the merged file is deleted upon closing Qckvu3.

Output 2 Color Map - if checked, the file overlay will create a special map file and assign all the layers originating from file 1 as red and all the layers originating from file 2 as blue. If not, layer colors will be assigned based on the default Qckvu3 map file.

Layer Offset - the value for offsetting layers. This value should be larger than the highest layer number in file 1. Otherwise there may be some layer number duplication.
