I have just installed IV2013, i have an issue with the visual style. I use it with shaded with edges, however after saving closing and then reopening it it comes in as shaded only.


Is there anyway to permentaly changing this so that when i open models it they are shaded with edges.

isn't it the same setting as 2012 (not installed 2013 here yet)


application options -> Display tab:

tick "use application settings" instead of "document settings" and click the "settings" button

here set "shaded with edges " as visual style (along with any other options).


Does that help?
