General Customization Commands

Most of the customization sections include four commands:

Edit Project List
Edit Master List or Edit Standards List
Copy Project List to Master or Copy Project List to Standards
Copy Master List to Project or Copy Standards List to Project

The command name and how it functions varies slightly depending upon whether the default settings are stored in the master database or the standards database.

This section describes these general commands and how they work for the customization commands.

If only one standards database exists, the command will immediately start editing that database using the appropriate dialog box.
