3.2 Setting global preferences

Choose Tools > Global Preferences... from the podium or Works > Tools > Global Preferences... to invoke the global preferences dialog. This dialog is used to specify global preferences, such as the name of the initialization file to use (which is initially .lispworks ).

Note: it is up to each user to create and maintain their own personal initialization file. A sample personal initialization file is supplied with LispWorks - see the file lib/5-1-0-0/config/a-dot-lispworks.lisp in the LispWorks distribution.
