    You can change it in the New Document Profiles. You may search for its location, depending on OS. It may be something like this in an earlier thread:

    Actually it's easy to find. In the new document dialog box, select "Browse" from the document profile menu. There you go directly into the folder where the new document profiles are.

    Thank you, Monika. That is good to know. Where were you in that other thread?

    You have to do that in all the document profile files that you want to use.

    I'm not on a mac, I'm using Windows 7, but there are two places where copies of these files are.

    One is in the user folder:

    C:\Users\me\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS5 Settings\en_US\New Document Profiles

    and the other is in the program files in the system

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS5\Support Files\Required\New Document Profiles\en_US

     

    When opening a new document Illustrator will look for the document profiles in the user folder. The Browse button will go to the location last used which after installation or resetting the settings will be the document profiles in the user folder.

    The files in the system will be used for creating the files in the user folder when deleting/resetting the settings.

     

    I'm writing this in case it was the system files that were modified. It is also possible if there are more users of the same computer, someone to have made a copy of the documents profiles and the Browse button takes there.
