here is a thread to share, compare, discuss about some settings in PRTDOT and ASMDOT.

 

i noticed while updating SWx to SWy "a long long time ago, in a galxy far,far away..."

that somes settings change strangely,

and some setting doesn't update.

 

also, when doing a "real fresh new install", SW point DOT to the tutorial folder, but it's seems majority of these files are updated to math the current SW version.

 

i tried to bypass the "tutorial" and force SW to generate a new file, it work, but i don't know from where the new file is cloned from, and the setting inside are not interesting, or up to date.

 

i don't want to list all the settings, but some basics, and some basics-user(company).

For some of them, i already managed/adjust them with my preference.

 

(to go quick on some setting, 0=unchecked option / 1=checked option)

3D basic planes : (Front, Top, Right) creator, creation date, autosize

Annotations folder : in tree panel, right-clic, details

Cfg properties : feat. suppressed / Suppresed new compoents (ASM only) / specific color

Display State : Hide new comp. (ASM only) / Linked

Lights : type and values

Document Setting : (Cotation) remove zero on right for Dim / Tol / Property

Document Setting : (Units)

Document Setting : (Quality)

Document Setting : (Weldment)

Document Setting : (Plane) front color, back color, transparencie, intersection
