    Hi all,

    I was wondering if there is a way of setting document preferences (or application wide) for the settings of a curtain on a pipe?
    specifically, I dont like the drape blue and change it for drape black every time. and the of set I set to 0.01 every time...
    I would like not to have to do this every time....

    hope someone has a trick.

    I am loving 64bit BTW. thanks programming team!

    ciao

    Sander

    Hi Sander,

    While this is not possible at the moment, it is definitely a good idea, so we will explore it for a future version. Thanks for bringing it up! :)

    In the mean time, can you please change the default texture for borders and legs as well as the Enable curtain function for surfaces to Drape Black? We work in theatre, we want things dark ;-)

    Hi Floriaan, this happens to be your personal and professional preference, but it may not be someone else's (not everyone who uses wysiwyg works in a theatre) so this is not a change that we will make. However, you can do this with a wysiwyg Template (.wyT) file.

    Why would anybody want to use blue borders and legs? These things are used in theatres!
    I dare you to make a poll out of this ;-)

    And please explain how I make that the default in a template.

    Hi Drew,
    I know not everyone is on facebook and I detest it as well, but the Poll function is easy to use.
    facebook Wysiwyg Pre-Viz users group.
    I put out a poll there.
    there isn't much response yet but in a few days I will post the replies here.
    thanks for nudging....
    ciao

    Hi All,

    the Poll has been up on facebook more then a week now.
    the results are in.....
    the result is that about 10 people took the time to click on one of 3 options, and the rest doesnt seem to care.
    here attached is a screen shot of the results
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/78ao6yjqz8edjc8/Screenshot 2020-03-10 12.27.43.png?dl=0
    the winner of this poll is;

    Give me the option to set a default application wide please.

    since no one that uses WYG (apart from the 11 people that voted and whom are on facebook)
    seems to care.
    could we please have it changed to this possibility?

    thanks

    Sander

    Thanks everyone. I will add this to the list, but it will likely not be in R45.
