The defaults for logger pro graphing
and graphical analysis are in a startup file (startup.cmbl in logger pro)
To change the values open logger pro, change the graph settings to
whatever you like best then save the file as mystartup.cmbl - You could
replace the original file but I found out that if you mess up - which I
did - you may end up reinstalling the program.



Still in logger pro go to preferences
(may be settings then preferences) - pop down menu appears. Put check in
start up box. Hit browse key. locate your new start up file and hit select.
Close everything down



I also found it pays to use your browser
to make your new startup file a read only file and lock it with a password.
Prevents students (or other instructors) from accidentally or purposefully
changing the file.
