User Defined Defaults

You can view and change a number of network object defaults and global parameters via a User Defined Defaults dialog.

The dialog is displayed when you choose an option from the User defined defaults submenu of the Network menu, and then select one of the following options:

The dialog allows you to view and edit default values for the selected network object. When the object uses the #D (default) flag for one of the fields listed below in the appropriate section, the default value entered here will be used. Making changes on this window and clicking OK will update network objects using the #D (default) flag if appropriate.

Click on the Reset System Defaults button to reset the default parameters to the original system defaults.

These defaults are applied if you set the #D (default) flag for any data field that has a default.

The underlying system defaults are NOT used when a field on the user defined defaults dialog is left blank. The blank value is treated as the default. In all places where this field has the #D (default) flag the field will be set blank. If it is not valid for the field to be blank the cell will be coloured pink, indicating that a value is required. You will also see errors when you validate the network.

Underlying system default values are shown in the tables below using InfoWorks ICM native units. If you have selected different units for the field, the default value displayed will be different. The current units are shown in the field title.
