Does anyone know where to set the default attributes for BOM text, including size and aspect ratio?

Hi again Steve

Well, looks like there is no way to bundle or otherwise set the defaults for all BOM text attributes (some are controlled in the background file "vxDftPrtLst" which is found in the installed program's Supp folder).

As a work around, you could set all the attribs as required, then use the macro command Encode to grab the settings from the template "UiTblAt". You can then have a simple macro to run to set the attribs to your required default (Decode using a hard coded text string) before defining a BOM.

Thanks for chencking chris. It's not really a big deal, since it's very easy to set the attributes after creating the BOM. I just try to minimize repetitive tasks whenever possible. Maybe a candidate for a PCR?

Yes, I think that would be a "nice to have".
