Administration: Disabling Document Property and Application Preference Modifications

Administrators can restrict which document properties and application preferences team members can modify by disabling (making read-only) Document Properties, Default Document Properties, and Application Preferences pages.

To disable document properties and application preferences, create string values under the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Dassault Systemes\Composer\Preferences

String Value String Data, separated by semicolons (;)
DisableDocumentPropertiesPages SecuritySignatureViewportsViewports_BackgroundSelectionImage_QualityInputFeature_FilterUpdateOutputAnimationImage_OutputHistoryExchange (Right Manager) ProjectPaper_OutputUnitsAdvanced
DisableDefaultDocumentPropertiesPages Same as DisableDocumentPropertiesPages
DisableApplicationPreferencesPages GeneralInputViewportsCameraSelectionNavigationHardware_SupportApplication_PathsData_PathsAdvancedProfiles (to disable the Profile field)

For example, to disable the Input, Hardware Support, and Advanced Settings pages, define: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Dassault Systemes\Composer\Preferences\DisableApplicationPreferencesPages as: Input;Hardware_Support;Advanced
