Changing default Show option in Resource Manager

Changing default Show option in Resource Manager

Greetings,

I would like to change the default option for the Show select list for the Link/Xref and Content Reference tabs in the Resource Manager to be "All elements with IDs" as this is the only option that I use. Without this customization, I have to continually change the Show select option.

I have been able to do this by hacking Arbortext\Editor\application\com.arbortext.dita\dialogs\ResourceManagerDlg.xml to change the default option, but I am wondering if there is a way to do this with a Preferences setting or using an environment variable, such as APTCUSTOM? I would like to share this with other users on my team, but I would prefer to maintain the customization outside the Arbortext\Editor installation folder so that my users don't have to muck around with those files after they install.

I am running on version 5.3 M120. Any thoughts or pointers are appreciated.

Re: Changing default Show option in Resource Manager

I am very interested in this too. Has there been any feedback from PTC. Specifically for AE 7.1 M050.
