Default Parameter Tables

Have you ever wondered what's the purpose of the different default parameter tables found when a new storage area is created?, we have you covered with our quick list Default Parameter Table Guide.  I hope it's helpful.  Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts!

    You can select to use System Defaults or a storage area for default parameter tables when creating new storage areas or running check files on existing storage areas. 

    Set New Defaults — the system will automatically copy the all of the parameter tables from the specified storage area when you create new storage areas.  In addition, it will copy all the basic data including Alteration, Annotation, Block Buffer, Lay limits, Rule Tables, and Size Codes from this Storage Area to the newly made one.

    TIP: If you plan to use "Set New Defaults," create a master Storage Area with all basic data items and parameter tables each newly created Storage Area will need.

    A warning will display if the New Defaults area is a version 9 Storage Area while creating a version 8 Storage Area.
