Schematic preferences should be stored with a schematic, not in a separate 
file loaded with the editor. This is only one of a number of nuisances 
created by the way that Protel Schematic deals with options.

If one person prints out and netlists a schematic, and then another person 
loads the same schematic, and then prints it out and netlists it, the 
prints and netlists should be identical. Anything short of that is 
*dangerous* -- if it affects the net list -- or a nuisance at best, if it 
only affects the prints. (Some variation in schematic printing might be 
necessary for different printers, but it should be minimal.)
