How to Specify Default Values

Sometimes, you may want to reuse settings from one time to another. For example, you may want to specify that the marked items color should always be red when you start TIBCO Spotfire, or that the default visualization should be a table. This is done in the Options dialog. The default values you set are also saved for your profile on the server, so your default settings will be available even if you are using a different computer.

An administrator can also configure which settings should be default for certain user groups on the server. If you are a member of such a group, these defaults will take effect for you, unless you have made an active choice and set your own default value in the Options dialog.

To reach the Options dialog:

  1. On the menu bar, select Tools > Options.
