File Save Options Setting a default

We find ourselves constantly changing frame rate from 6 to 24 in File Options in Simulate. Is there a way to set this value by default or is it bound into the software?

There's no actual place to reset the default FPS to a personal setting. That is part of the Navisworks program as a standard. Only the developers can change that. However there are a few settings that we have found applicable namely:

 

  1. Change the Frame Rate manually
  2. In the options Editor dialogue box > under display > deselect "Guaranteed frame rate"
  3. Options you can change in your export dialogue box for FPS

Those are the only variables you can change

Ah, that's a pity. So what you are saying is, that we need to send some of our famous Danish cookies to California and wait a bit while the developers munch away :smileyhappy:. Or, in other words: I really think this should be possible - the entire File Options dialog should be set in XML.

You could post this idea in the IdeaStation. So they know what to work on while munching away

Oh, there doesn't seem to be an IdeaStation for Navisworks. Am I missing something?
