How can I preserve Symbol Editor settings in PADS 9.31?

Hello All,


I'm trying to preserve newly entered Symbol Editor (nse.exe) preferences but for some reason every time the program is reloaded from within DxDesigner all settings revert to some default standard.

I was able to control and preserve some settings by editing the Dxdesigner.xml file in the default C:\PADS Projects directory but then I noticed that the settings that I really wish to preserve are being stored in the mgc_nse_2007.ini (under the Windows "Users" directory). Unfortunately that file is being overwritten every time the Symbol editor is being re-lunched, again, with some default standard that I cannot control.

This issue is very important to us since we're trying to establish a workable standard, whereby all settings are uniform among the PADS/DxD users in our company. Having to write a windows batch file to override mgc_nse_2007.ini upon nse.exe startup may be a solution, but definetly not an elegant one...


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,
