5.1.0 Editing Parameter Display Defaults
In the previous section we covered how to create new color tables. We saw that for a temperature field there were certain default values for the color table and range that is used. In this section we will discuss how to change this default behavior using the Parameter Defaults Editor.
  1. If you haven't done so already load in some example data and create a display of temperature.
  2. Open up the Parameter Defaults Editor by selecting the Tools->Parameter Defaults Editor menu item.
  3. There should be two tabs shown: User Defaults and System Defaults. The first tab shows the user editable parameter defaults. The second tab shows the system defaults.
  4. Click on the System Defaults tab.
  5. The first column shows the parameter name pattern that is used to match the parameter. More about patterns.
  6. Change the default color table and range for temperature parameters.
  7. Test out this change.
  8. What about setting defaults for new parameters?
