If you insert the following command (for example): SetOptions[ ListPlot, PlotJoined -> True, PlotRange -> All ] in your init.m file it will be evaluated at the start of every Mathematica session. Note that you probably want to use a text editor such as notepad and not the Mathematica front end. I hope this helps. --Ian ----------------------------------------------------------- Ian Collier Technical Sales Support Wolfram Research, Inc. ----------------------------------------------------------- tel:(217)-398-0700 fax:(217)-398-0747 ianc at wri.com Wolfram Research Home Page: http://www.wri.com/ -----------------------------------------------------------
