To Set Options
To set options in the non-ribbon user interface mode do the following steps.
1. Click Tools > Options. The Options dialog box opens. Settings from the most recently loaded file are displayed. The icon next to the option shows whether the edit is applied immediately, applied to the next instance of an object created, or applied to the next session.
2. Locate the option you want to set. When you highlight an option in the list, it appears in the line labeled Option: in the lower part of the dialog box.
3. In the Value text box, enter the new value. If the value entries are fixed, for example Yes or No, you can use the drop-down list at the bottom of the dialog to see what values are available. If the value requires an integer, type it in. If the value requires a path or file, type it in or use the Browse option to locate it.
4. When you have edited the value, click Add/Change. The new value is applied in the options list window. The status icon for the affected line changes to show that an edit to the default has been made.
5. When you have finished making edits to the config option values, click Apply, or OK. Changes that can be applied immediately appear in the user interface.
Additionally, when you edit a value during the current session, a configuration file called is automatically created in the working directory. This file contains only the configuration options you changed with their new settings. If the file already existed, it is edited or appended with the new settings.
