Promise V8i enable grips globally, turn off cross references globally, keep o-snap preferences

Is there a way to enable grips throughout all pages and projects per user?  If I turn them on, they are only active for one page.  If I navigate to another page, they are disabled again.

For child symbols, the cross references automatically show up.  We don't want to see this.  Is there a way to turn these off completely?

If I have a set of object snaps selected and I toggle (F3) o-snap off, it re-prompts me every time I turn it back on.  I would like the o-snap selections to remain when I toggle.  Is this possible?

  • Grips are disabled intentionally to avoid problems that can occur when things like symbols and wires are stretched, inadvertently or otherwise.  So I would not recommend turning them on.

    To suppress cross references at child symbols, select Project Manager > Options > Project Options > Display Formats and edit the Device Cross Reference format.  Uncheck the box for "Display Child Symbol Cross-referencing".

    Regarding the object snaps toggle, do you mean the settings dialog appears when you turn object snaps back on?  Does this happen in the same session or only after restarting promis.e?  Does the problem happen in plain AutoCAD as well?  I'm wondering if this is a behavior specific to certain AutoCAD versions, it does not happen for me in AutoCAD 2010.
