Under the Custom Settings tab, choose the Desktop editing mode. Then set the parameters to whatever you want.
When you are in the Create New Project dialog, select the General tab, and for Editing Mode select "Desktop". You can then set all parameters to custom values that you need to match your source material.
Wow, I can't believe I missed that! Thanks, guys!
I find that the term "Desktop," is not initially intuitive. However, once you know it, well you have it. It's the first time that one encounters it that it seems a bit odd.
Glad that you got it sorted. Now, use "Desktop" in a sentence three times today...
