Shading Quality

I would like to set the default shading quality to 10 using Is this possible, or do I have to reset it every time I launch Pro/E?

The answer is in the Level of Detail options.

Add these lines to your config:

lods_enabled YES
lods_value 100
yes, no

These will determine whether or not the system uses Level of Detail in shaded models during dynamic orientation (panning, zooming and spinning).
