Chapter 2. Starting a Project > Saving Custom Settings as a Preset

Saving Custom Settings as a Preset

Even if you’re comfortable selecting project settings, making those choices still can be a chore. Fortunately, you can save different settings as presets that appear in the Load Project Settings dialog box. You can also delete presets from the list.

To save settings:

1.
Do either of the following:

  • In the Load Project Settings dialog box, click Custom (Figure 2.20).

    Figure 2.20. Click Custom in the Load Project Settings dialog box...

  • Choose Project > Project Settings > General (Figure 2.21).

    Figure 2.21. ... or choose Project > Project Settings > General.

The General panel of the Project Settings dialog box appears (Figure 2.22).

Figure 2.22. Specify custom settings in the General panel of the Project Settings dialog box.


2.
Specify the project settings, as explained in the previous section, “Selecting Settings.” (For explanations of each setting, see Chapter 18.)

3.
In the Project Settings dialog box, click Save.

The Save Project Settings dialog box appears.

4.
Type a name for your settings, as well as an accurate description that summarizes your choices (Figure 2.23).

Figure 2.23. Enter a description of your custom settings and a name for the preset.


5.
Click OK to close the dialog box.

6.
Click OK to close the Project Settings dialog box and start your project.

From now on, your saved preset appears in the Available Presets section of the Load Project Settings dialog box. When this preset is selected, the description appears in the Description area (Figure 2.24).
