First of all, I have a new seat of CREO and the config file is hard to find?
Second, the working config file tol_mode is not "modifiable"?
Third, can someone send me a decent config file? I am a senior designer and need a really nice config setup
Unlike the detail.dtl file, it appears that the default config.pro is internal.
We save our custom config.pro file into the directory that your Windows shortcut points too using the "Start In" path.
There really is no "best" setup. It is "best" to know your options and make some choices. You can do this on the fly until you get some semblence of an idea of what you want in the long run. You can also edit this later with your favorite text editor.
I've attached WF5 config options in an easy to read/sort Excel format file**. Many should still apply to Creo, though there are always a few that get added and some that get removed. I put some x's next to items that were of interest to me, but your interests will be different. Olaf Corten has lists of the config options up to Creo 2, though my (out of date) version has the descriptions and classifications right there. http://www.proesite.com/index.html
For your particular problem, perhaps someone has set up a config.sup file, which not only takes precedence, it also prevents further modifications to any options that are in it. Done correctly, it is a way to enforce company policies.
