What do you mean by "customize"? Users who report troubles with customization run into troubles because they are not aware of the scopes at which settings may apply. They spend their time tweaking the Option Inspector with the scope set to "global", but their efforts are in vain because the setting they are trying to modify is actually set at the style sheet or notebook levels. Be sure to read Section 2.8.10 of _The Mathematica Book_ (Third or Fourth Edition), namely the section titled "Styles and the Inheritance of Option Settings." If you can post some specific, precise statments of the things you want to modify, we may be able to suggest some ways of getting it done. There are a number of specific examples on the Wolfram Research Technical Support FAQ site http://support.wolfram.com/ -- P.J.
