GIZMO Off

Is there any way to permanently and globally turn off the Gizmo? I'm constantly setting DEFAULTGIZMO to 3 in my drawings, but it resets to 1 after reopening the drawing.

 

I'm using MEP 2013. Any help is appreciated!

Just add the following line to your acaddoc.lsp file:

 

(setvar "DEFAULTGIZMO" 3)

 

If you haven’t already created an acaddoc.lsp file, use notepad to save one in C:\Users\<loginname>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\MEP 2012\enu\Support.

See http://screencast.com/t/DJPct3lphz

Behavior cannot be changed.

That is, disappointing.  But thanks for your reply.
