User’s Guide : Global Options
Global Options
EViews employs user-specified default settings in many operations. You may, for example, set defaults for everything from how to perform frequency conversion between workfile pages of different frequency, to which font to use in table output, to line color and thickness in graphs, to how to compute derivatives in nonlinear estimation routines.
These default options may, of course, be overridden when actually performing an operation. For example, you may have specified a default conversion of data from monthly to quarterly data by averaging observations, but may choose to use summing when performing a specific conversion. Similarly, you may instruct EViews to use the color red for the first line in newly created graphs, and then change the color in a specific graph.
The following sections describe the various global options that you may set using the Options menu and the Print Setup dialog.
