PBRUSH.CNV File Assigns Default Directories to File Types

ID: Q37263

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Paintbrush for MS-DOS, version 4.0


You can create a PBRUSH.CNF file that will assign default directories to some file types.

The following is an example of what can be done:

To save the following type of file: Include the following line:

Temporary                               temp = <drive or directory>
Picture                                 pcx =  <drive or directory>
Cutout picture                          cutout = <drive or directory>
Font                                    font = <drive or directory>

The term <drive or directory> is the name of the drive or directory where you want to save the specified files.


The following is an example of the PBRUSH.CNF file

   temp = c:
   pcx = c:\paint\picture
   cutout = c:\paint\cutout
   font = c:\paint\font 

You can also specify a default aspect ratio in the PBRUSH.CNF (the aspect ratio will round) with the following line:

   ASPECT = <aspect ratio>
