This Tech Tip explains how to change the default layout and theme to look and work like earlier versions of Civil Designer.
Default the Layout
In version 8.x we introduced a new default colour and multi document interface.
Modifying the Layout
Settings Menu > System Settings
If you change the default settings to the above, you will get a similar interface to the earlier versions.
Note that for some of the settings to be applied you will have to close the program and re-open.
Some of the default toolbars will also have to be switched off or moved into the correct position.
