Template Variables

Template Variables can be used to manipulate the file in various ways to slightly change how it works without having to make your own local copy.

Note that the template_variables: section only needs to be used if you do want to actually change how the defaults work. Any value not specified will use its default value if it has one if not it's just ignored.

Variable Lists (click to expand)
  • File-Specific Template Variables are variables available specifically for this PMM Defaults file.
