Make it easy to choose defaults
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
Quote from David on mailing list "Almost every time I open a file, I find myself immediately going and changing the point size from 5 to 2, changing the colors to my color vector, and changing the display type from "surface" to "point". I have many colleagues who complain about the same thing. If you open say 5 files, this is an extra ~ 25 mouse clicks, which gets very tedious if you're doing this all day. Is there anyway (besides editing the source, clearly) that we can set these things to be defaults?"
