if, in the R Console, you specify arguments in quartz() than the behaviour is the following: if you didn't check the "override" box, specified arguments are used, otherwise (the box is checked) the arguments you pass in quartz() are ignored and preferences parameters are used instead.
We needed a criteria to let R understand what to do with two different specifications of input arguments.
