"L" means locked variable. I recommend to create msdebug.txt file and to analyze, in what workapace cfg file the variables is locked.

I have noticed if you save the Configuration File it goes to a .ufc file
I have some older saved .ufc files and wondered If you messed up on a change
could you restore from the previous saved .UFC file. When this laptop was passed
on to me the setting above "Default Design File Seed System L wants to look at
seed2d.dgn. I thought on the previous laptop I was able to change path and all ?
I was made administrator on this machine as I am the only user. I followed the great suggestion Jan gave, and have the debug file but now have no idea what to do with it ? I tried looking through it, but did not know what I was looking for. I have searched on how to unlock a locked setting, no-one seems to write anything. Plenty on Locking. I do have the option to setup a new default but get the blanks to fill in and do not know what to put? Anyone else ever crossed this bridge ?
Do not want to crash the program, I did try a different name and $(_USTN_SYSTEMROOT)seed\RJBP_seed2d.dgn, but after it asks do I want to change it goes right back to the seed2d.dgn ??? Hope information is good enough to get help. If anyone needs I could try to attach the debug file ?
Richard Phillips said:I have noticed if you save the Configuration File it goes to a .ufc file
A User Configuration File (UCF) has a .ucf extension (not .ufc). MicroStation won't recognise a different extension.
A UCF, as with all MicroStation configuration files, is a plain text file. You can open it with a text editor such as Windows Notepad. Don't attempt to use a formatting text editor, such as Microsoft Word, because it will save the file in the wrong format.

Thank you Jon, now in the configuration file>Seed File Location USER
c:\programdata\bentley\microstation v8i (selectseries)\workspace\projects\rjbp\seed\ I have this line, yet when I select New Microstation keeps opening the default design file seed and only looks looks seed2d.dgn. Even if I Select new and put in the path above it resets to the same think. it is Locked. Does it have to be locked ?
I also checked the MS_SEEDFILES USER and it also has the above path and added \rjbp_seed2d.dgn trying to get it to load my seed file. Any suggestions ?
Jon, this information did the trick
I was able to change:
Into the following:Now everytime I select new if my .ucf is loaded it goes to the one I had wanted. Thank you so very much for your help through the years
