Administration & Customizing


The following articles are for advanced users and system administrators.

The system administration functions are not available as a default. The functions are not required in normal design work. Only a system administrator should edit the system settings.

The system administrator's functions include editing the settings and component libraries.

  • You can edit the system's keywords by selecting  Preferences Edit. Default values for several parameters are defined in the settings.
  • You can find the functions for editing the component libraries on the System tab.

As a system administrator, you can start using the system administration functions by adding the following keyword to the ./user/SETUP file:

set.system.menu= 1

If the program environment has been installed on a network server, set the keyword to your own user-specific ../user/SETUP.COMPUTER_NAME file.

The setting takes effect when you restart Vertex.
