Indesign preference settings

It has been a long time since I started using Indesign and for long I kept misunderstanding how Indesign preferences settings worked. For those of you who’re still in trouble about what preferences are stored in the documents and which ones affect only to Indesign here you have a short summary of the Indesign’s preferences window.
