You can edit the TDGSS user configuration file to:

  • Change the value of a mechanism property in an existing mechanism configuration.
  • Add a new property to an existing mechanism, then edit the property value.
  • Copy a new mechanism from the library configuration file into the user configuration file, then edit the mechanism property values.
    If you can use the default property values for a new mechanism, you do not need to transfer the mechanism into the user configuration file. A mechanism can perform default functions from the library configuration file.
