Display Settings

Properties | Setting preferences for the current display

In addition to configuring application-wide defaults, you can also specify defaults for the current display by selecting Current Display Settings from the Edit menu. When you select this command, the Edit Current Display Settings dialog box appears. This dialog box provides a Display tab identical to the Display tab of the Edit Application Preferences dialog box. The main differences between the two dialog boxes are:     

For example, suppose you set the application display default background color to white. If you create a display called Overview.dpi, its background is white, by default. If you subsequently change the application display default background color to red, the background color of Overview.dpi remains white, but new displays automatically use the new default.
