Perspective vs parallel View settings....

Perspective vs parallel View settings....

Perspective vs parallel View settings....

Each time I open a CATPart or Assembly in Catia, it comes as a perspective view.
How could I change it to parallel?
I am referring to settings, not to manually going into View > Render Style > etc....
I couldn't find anything helpful in the Options....

RE: Perspective vs parallel View settings....

Set it up the way you like and overwrite your CATsettings file(user preferences). Some companies have a custom command for this in their CAD launch, others(most) do not. If you do not have this, properly exit CATIA with File>>Close, File>>>Exit (not the windows red X). It may take a few tries but it usually sticks.
