"MCD File" entry ticked by default?

"MCD File" entry ticked by default?

Hi,

 

Many times a day I use the "Save a CL File" button to post a MCD File.
Everytime I do it, I have to tick "MCD File" in the submenus that follow, see screencapture for reference.

 

Is there a way to make Creo remember I ticked this option, at least for the current session?
Creo remembers you ticked the MACHINE option for instance and the next time you use "Save a CL File", the MACHINE entry is already ticked for you, which is good.

Is there a hidden option for "MCD file"? Or an custom entry to write somewhere in a configuration file?

 

I have discovered the menu entries for this menu are defined in 
Common Files\text\usascii\menus\output_type.mnu
but there's no way to define what is ticked by default or not, at least that I'm aware of.

I also had a look at the trail file, nothing struck me as a clue there.

 

Any help appreciated!

In your Common Files\text directory create a file named menu_def.pro

Put the following line in your file and restart Creo.

If you already have the menu_def.pro file just add the line to the file.

 

OUTPUT#TYPE MCD#File

 

Make sure there there is only one space in front of MCD#File

Worked like a charm.
Thank you!

I have placed my "menu_def.pro" file in the same location as my "config.pro" file.
