Where can you change the vertical exaggeration of a profile model in the OpenRoads product? There is not an option in any command settings to set this. When I go to the View Attreibutes - Civil - Exaggeration, there is a drop down menu. My Customer requiresa 6' exaggeration not 5 or 10, so how do I change this? I'm the only person running this software in my office, and I'm learing it by bentley online - so where do I find help for this?
There is a configuration variable CIVIL_EXAGGERATION_VALUES that lists the available values. Amend the variable by (1) File > Settings > Configuration > Configuration Variables or (2) edit the relevant configuration (.cfg) file in a text editor to add the value you need.

This only controls which values it offers in the drop down menu. Can we also set a default value to use?. In Ss4 a save settings does not seem to work. Plus, since it is recommended that you not save settings with Cross Section or Profile Views open, this is not much help.
