This warning is controlled by a setting in your Preferences (Defaults).

  1. First go to Design Defaults > Default board > check the board that is selected by default.
  2. Then, go to Single design parameter sets > choose the concerned folder and board, as configured in Default board > Startup Defaults > Flute/grain and change the settings as given below:
    1. Choose the Use as is radio button in the Options on restore section.
    2. Uncheck the Warn if it differs from default checkbox.
  3. Save the changes in your defaults and open your design again. The warning won't pop up anymore.

    An incorrect modification of values and parameters in the ArtiosCAD Defaults can cause critical problems that might lead to severe problems in the correct functioning of the program. Esko cannot guarantee the proper working of your ArtiosCAD installation due to an incorrect handling of parameters and settings. A reinstall might be mandatory in order to restore the original system state. For this reason, Esko recommends that you take regular backups of the ServerLib (Shared Defaults) folder, the database and the FileStore.

    Please contact your local Esko Support team in case you need more advice related to backups.
