Creating a new configuration file


To create a new configuration file:

  1. Choose Configuration from the Options menu.

    A Configuration dialog appears, showing a list of configuration parameters.

    For each parameter, there is a short description, the corresponding environment variable which would override it, and the current value.

  2. Choose New from the File menu of the Configuration dialog.

    A new configuration is created with default values for the parameters.

  3. Choose Save As ... from the File menu of the dialog.

    A File dialog appears.

  4. Enter a name for the new configuration file and click OK.

    Use the name rigicfg.env so that rigiedit can automatically attempt to find it.

  5. Click Done to dismiss the Configuration dialog.
