Checking or resetting System attribute defaults

Over time, in successive Tinderbox releases, some System attributes' defaults have changed. These changes won't show up for existing users if their Tinderbox Preference file already defines the values - i.e. some but not all values are masked by existing Preferences.

If it is desired to reset/review attribute defaults:

The old and new Preferences file can now be compared for differences. Attribute defaults set directly via the app can be viewed by opening the saved new TBX in a text editor (the source is XML code).

For long-term users with TBXs originally created in older versions, the issue is the latter are set and fixed at doc creation - new app defaults aren't applied. Comparing the attributes section of the new TBX with tone or more existing files may show up changes that can then be applied, if required, to the existing document(s) by resetting the document attribute defaults. Note that some attributes, being set via Preferences, should be altered by that mechanism.
