Reset option for menus

When you apply "Reset Toolbars", VX restarts itself - the current file you are in is returned to screen, so it is painless.
I like the idea of having the default items in a different colour (or bold). Would be great on the CAM side where there are many options.

If there was to be a reset to default option for each (how many are there?) variable dialogue, that would be cool. However, IMHO, there are a few things that might need to occur before that is undertaken.
There needs to be consistency between commands as to how user choices are handled. Some commands, always revert to system choice, others stay with last user choice, some resent on closing VX, (there may be other scenarios too)
I think the rule should be to use the last user choice and this should endure between sessions. RMB choices especially are in this category.
I find attributes, a bit frustrating, in that on opening the attribute dialoge, the current attribute setting is NOT displayed. As a result, you're not always sure of the current setting being used. Especially tricky when the attributes are similar in appearance but with some differences of importance. This is also a 'default' setting issue ambiguity.
Consistency of behaviour is very important, especailly when it can significantly reduce the clicks. mouse and input actions as I believe a 'enduring last choice' regime would.
Ability to revert to a default command setting is consistent with this idea, even more so if the user has some influence on what these end up being as in attributes.

That is very strange, because the current attributes setting should be displayed - to which attributes dialog do you refer?

yes definitely a bit obscure - my apologies.
The attributes dialogue does indeed display, however the 'in use' bundle name does not. It just seems to me that it would be mighty helpful to know just which bundle I am dealing with at the time.
Does this make any more sense?
