Mid-Ordinate Distance with Breaklines

I have searched, but have not found, where can I set the default for my
mid-ordinate distance when adding breaklines to a surface. Would like to
change it from 1.0 to 0.1.
Thanks

I looked too.... seems that command is buried somehow inside the surface
creation command and may not be changeable... I will keep digging.

Thanks. Not a huge deal just would be nice. One less thing to think about
you know.

There is no option for this in 2008 and before. And if it has been added in 2009, I haven't been able to find it yet.

Yeah, it's 2009 I'm looking for, if it's there, it's buried pretty deep.
The only default mid-ordinate value I've been able to find is for
creating a feature line from an alignment. Nothing for adding
breaklines to surfaces.

I found what appears to be the option in

Toolspace -> Settings -> Surface -> Commands -> AddSurfaceBreaklines -> Add data options

I changed it to 0.05 and that figure is now greyed-out when I add the breaklines.

...But on viewing the surface it seems to have still used the default value (when using Proximty breaklines)!
