Limiting the number of records returned in SAS Enterprise Guide when viewing a database table

I understand that on the EG client you can go into the options / performance and set the the 'Mamimum number of row to display in the data grid with SAS/ACCESS data'  I am looking to apply this limit across all clients without having to manually touch and set each machine. I would also like to set a default for any  new installs. Is this possible?

We are using SAS EG 7.13HF3.

If you use a company-wide software deployment tool, you could use that to deploy the relevant .xml file(s) to your clients upon installation.

 

- set up the master copy of EG on the first machine

- implement all settings you want your default installation to have

- copy your %AppData%\Roaming\SAS\EnterpriseGuide directory to a location for your SW deployment tool

- copy that after each EG installation to the new user's %AppData%
