Option to disable all config.pro options

It would be nice if there was a checkbox in the Configuration Editor to turn on/off all config.pro options so you could troubleshoot if the config.pro was causing an unexpected behavior.

 

I understand you can restart Creo without the config.pro set but it is a pain to restart sometimes. I also understand that this idea would be hard to impliment because some options can't really be turned on and off (like switching the graphics setting).

No...turning off the config.pro would not erase what is in memory, you need to restart Creo with your config.pro file renamed so it does not load.

Don't forget that there can be 3 config.pro files and a config.sup file loaded at startup for each Creo session.

Then there can be additional ones loaded manually after Creo starts.

 

Which file has the option causing the error would be hard to find.

Also, this is a 'one-time' problem, so why should PTC spend resources on a process to erase all config.pro settings from the system to debug a rare and infrequent issue?

 

Take the time and debug your config.pro files manually, you will understand them better in the end, too.
