An option to optset

Postby johansamuelsson » Wed Mar 16, 2016 10:45 pm

When producing graphs we use some different settings depending on the context in which the graph is to be presented. We use various options for the "Graphics Defaults" via the "optset" -command. In these cases, we don't want to change the "General Options", they should always be the same.

It would be good if the it were possible to set which INI-files to be read in the "optset"-command. Alternatively would be that Eviews only read the INI-files that are presented in the specified directory. Now, if you remove for example Eviews32.INI from the specified directory you get the error message "Path or file not found ....\ EViews32.ini."

ok, but is there any benefit over using templates to set your graph options?
