Management of DXF Settings

In this scenario, administrators will learn how to lock settings using DXF setting as an example.
The procedure is the same when locking other settings.

  1. You need to work in administrator mode. To do this, proceed as follows:

    • Set up the CATReferenceSettingPath variable.
    • Start a V5 session using the -admin option.
  2. When logged as administrator, a green lock button is displayed to the left:

    Clicking this green lock (which then turns ) lets you lock the default parameters for all users.
    As a consequence, the values of those options will be locked when running a session as non-administrator.
