Is there a way to have the light settings file, light.dlg automatically load when opening Pro/E? I've looked in config.pro and haven't found any options to point to this file. Going into the light editor everytime to load this file is getting old!
12. Start up Pro/E with the shortcut icon you just modified. Pro/E will run the trail file and quickly alter the settings you specified in your trail file.
13. Now you're ready to continue with a normal Pro/E session.
This is a way to load settings at the start up of Pro/E. Remember that your lights setting is only good for one window, so if you want to open more windows, you'll need to open a lights setting for those windows as well. A mapkey is good for this.
Here is my trail file for the above proceedure. Please don't copy and paste this, thinking that it will work for you. Unless your directories are set up exactly like mine and you have the same filenames as mine, it won't work. This is just an example.
