5.2 Configure and Automatically Package Workspace Settings

You can use the Modify User Settings feature in the Installation Customization Tool to deploy Workspace Settings. With this approach, you open the Workspace Settings dialog box from the Installation Customization Tool. The modified settings are automatically saved to your companion file and deployed to the correct directory.

NOTE:You can also create customize the Workspace.settings file by launching the Workspace directly, then creating a companion file as described in Create a Companion Package to Install Customized Settings Files.
