Hi Siraj,

At the time, I knew 12.0 better than now. The SET command has always allowed you to change the default template being used, so creative use of SET and GRAPH together should help.

Again, when the time comes and you are using 14.0+ GPL is really great and allows you to control virtually everything that you would wish to, and all with code.

Good luck.
