    Changing default highlighted button in Meditor dialog boxes

    Is it possible to change the default selected value for the Dialog Boxes in Meditor? For example, when editing shared metadata, a dialog box appears asking if we want to copy the metadata, or edit. "Yes" is the default highlighted button, but we'd prefer if it was "No".

    The related configuration file is on your PC at: C:\DigiTool\MEDITOR\TAB\eng\message.dat. You can change the following line in the file so that "No" will be the default highlighted button when editing shared metadata:

    CopyShareMD DigiTool Meditor YN 1 Q Do you want to copy the Metadata or edit the shared one?\nTo copy Metadata press YES button.\nTo edit the shared Metadata - press NO button.

    To update it on the server so that all staff users can get the updated one, you need to change the file under:
    (if the message.dat file is not under ./sp_exe directory, you can copy it from /exlibris/dtl/d3_x/dtl/pc_exe/sp_conf)
