IGDSPLOT Variable names you can set within Virtuoso

Customers often requested us to add variable names to IGDSPLOT which can be used to store default file and directory names. Most of the default settings for IGDSPLOT can be found in the user's home directory under a directory name called .artwork/igdsplot.Xdefaults
