4.9.24 LoadPrefs

Syntax: LoadPrefs [filename]
Abbreviation: LP

loads the given preference file, and sets the current preferences accordingly.

If the optional filename argument is not specified, the file requester is opened, and you are prompted to select a file. (You can inhibit the file requester opening by using the NoFileReq command; see NoFileReq.) If you escape from the file requester, you can input the file name on the command line.

Note that a preferences file is just a macro containing only option modifiers. You can manually edit a preferences file for special purposes, such as filtering out specific settings. See Hints and Tricks.
