To disable the Relative option when using the Place Active Cell command, create a MS Basic macro with the following code:
Sub mainMbeSetAppVariable "", "tcb->msToolSettings.placeCell.relative", 0&End SubYou can run the macro each time a file is opened using the MDL application Runmacro . This macro won't stop users from changing it, but it will set it off when the drawing is opened.
This bit of code was tested up to and including V8i.
