CATIA standard ” generativeparameters ” are used to configure in drawings , models display in the views, lines of type , thicknesses, colors etc …

To change the standard that you use the default , you change to Tools > Options > Drafting > Administration , the ” generative view style ” and check ” prohibit the use of generative view style ” once checked you can change the view style for a CATIA session, or to create a view, you can also have several styles of view by drawing.

Using ” generativeparameters ” configuration files
When the above option ” unchecked ” we will access when creating a view to the dialog for selecting the generative view style :

You can also select the generative view style by selecting ” view advanced face” :

If the view was created with a different style we can change it , you go to Tools > Import generative view style …

Then prompt the dialog style is selected :

To change select ” Save as a new file ” to define a custom directory for your configuration is here: https://cao-3d-pro.com/catia-standards-drafting-custom-directory/

To edit or create files in custom configurations , it will open a CATIA session in administrator mode.

If you are not admin CATIA the procedure is here https://cao-3d-pro.com/catia-administrator-mode-configuration/

if you do not have rights in writings on directories it will create a new CATIA environment the procedure is here https://cao-3d-pro.com/catia-environment-and-catsettings/

In the left tab “Files” I select ” generativeparameters ” in the right tab I select a configuration , the options of the selected configuration is displayed in the left window.

If I select an option the value of this option will be displayed in the right window :
