There is no tension settings like a regular machine would have. Instead you set the type of fabric you are working on - Woven Light, Woven Medium, Woven Heavy, knit... Things like that. I have some issues with the seams on dresses - but I think it will get some getting used to. I still prefer to use a walking foot, just to make sure I have the even feeding.
And thank you all for the wonderful comments. I am really loving the machine and I get excited to leave work now.
