You can change the defaults of all created objects by modifying the template parts. 

Please take some time to read about customization in the help, and watch some of the customization videos in the tech tips area. 

 

For sure watch at least these two:

The video player should have controls in the browser. I can pause and play, or grab the progress bar on the bottom and slide it left or right.

I believe this is covered somewhere in the tech tips/etc. but just to make sure....

I would suggest you copy the Siemens supplied files to a different name (if not location) and edit them there.  That way if Siemens updates their files, your changes won't get lost (even though they are using the \updates\ folder)

 

To use the new name files, either "browse" to the file or copy/edit the MACH\resource\template_set\*.OPT file to point to your customized files
