CM config.sup options are the same as config.pro options. The only reason for the different extension is that of all of the several (4) config files which can be automatically loaded at startup this one is always read first and this one is the only one whose settings are not overwritten by the config.pro files loaded after it. Its purpose is to hold company-wide or otherwise standard settings (set by the supervisor) that are not to be changed by individual users using their individual config.pro files. At startup the system looks in the text subdirectory of the loadpoint for a config.sup, then a config.pro file. Next it looks in the login or home directory for a config.pro, then in your startup directory for another config.pro. For example: 1. C:\proeWildfire 3.0\text\config.sup 2. C:\proeWildfire 3.0\text\config.pro 3. C:\Documents and Settings\johndoe\config.pro 4. C:\PROE_PROJECTS\config.pro If you have the same options in #3 & #4, the option value in #4 overwrites #3, but #1 can't be overridden. Of course you can overwrite any option by subsequent loading of other specific config.pro files or entry into Tools/Options, but not with this automatic load process. Among other options set in config.sup files are "path" options which direct everyone in the outfit to the same drawing formats, drawing standards, fastener library, etc., etc. David
To add to what Davis said, if you pick #Tools #Options, choose "current session" from the "Showing" pull-down and clear the "Show only options loaded from file" check box. That will list all options. However some are "hidden". A good source that I knew about where you can look up even hidden optios is http://www.proesite.com/newframe.htm?/UTIL/view_config.html
That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure. The config.sup we have had some paths and such listed for formats, materials, symbols, etc, but I wanted to know if there was nomenclature to get me to a "template", or "start part" directory. I tried: "pro_template_dir" and "pro_start_model_dir" but that didn't work. Any ideas? Thanks!
