How to set dtm planes, dtm axes, dtm points OFF

Anybody know a config.pro or config.dtl setting that will control if datums (planes, axes, points) and csys are displayed when a drawing is opened? Whenever I open a drawing, the datums and csys are ON by default. Is there any way to make them OFF by default?



Thanks!

Brian-

Thanks. Your link is to 2001 options. Do you know the difference between the options shown in black and the options shown in blue in the 2001 options in the link?

I made a special config file named config.plot that has the display of all datums, etc. turned off. My PLOT mapkey loads this config file and does a zoom reset prior to creating the plot file. This way I never have to worry about the current settings when I want to plot.

Guys-

I'm running 2000i^2. I tried a few from the list:

DISPLAY_AXES

DISPLAY_AXIS_TAGS

DISPLAY_COORD_SYS

DISPLAY_COORD_SYS_TAGS

DISPLAY_PLANES

DISPLAY_PLANE_TAGS

DISPLAY_POINTS

DISPLAY_POINT_TAGS

and discovered that the config.pro editor does not recognize them. Any more ideas? It seems that the config options are good only for 2001 and up.



Thanks!
