# How do I save the view clipping plane settings?

In this menu, I always set the clip start value to be 0.01m, because the default of 0.1m is not small enough for my use cases where I am frequently close to objects.

However, this setting resets back to 0.1m every time I restart Blender. Is there a way to save it so that it automatically uses 0.01m when I open Blender?

• Have you tried File > Defaults > Save Start Up File after setting the setting? – batFINGER Jan 20 at 4:16
• This works! However, note that you need to do this when you have nothing open, as it saved the model I was currently working on into the start up file... so I just deleted everything and re-saved. If you post this as an answer I'll accept it. – Aaron Franke Jan 20 at 6:07
