Site Standards #1 - User Settings

Here are some sensible settings to add to your Company_Standards.cfg:

#----------------------------------------------------------------------
# User Settings
#----------------------------------------------------------------------
MS_SNAPMODE_SOURCE = 1

MS_SPELLINGLANGUAGE = BritishEnglish
%lock MS_SPELLINGLANGUAGE

  • MS_SNAPMODE_SOURCE saves snap settings in your user preferences file instead of individually in each design file.

V8i only, spelling is set by locale in CONNECT Edition:

  • MS_SPELLINGLANGUAGE centrally sets the spelling language to your locale and can be locked as shown.

Also please note the variables MS_MONITOR_USER_PREFS and MS_COMPRESS_USER_PREFS previously included in the example above are no longer required, They related to early versions of MicroStation V8.
