    Question about quick cat forms

    You can default all fast cat records to MX instead of BK by adding this line to tab_fix in the bib library:

    INSFS fix_doc_do_file_08 change_fmt.fix

    And then create a fix script in the import directory (under the tab directory of the bib library) with the name change_fmt.fix and these contents:
