  • $\begingroup$ But if you add more detail to your question and explain in detail what your problem is (and show some images, or share a blend file) maybe someone can find a solution. $\endgroup$ – cegaton Mar 30 '17 at 14:03
  • $\begingroup$ Ah, that's it. I was looking in user preferences. I've got the main problem here: blender.stackexchange.com/questions/76346/… But the problem is elusive, sometimes showing up and sometimes not, like a car when you bring it to a mechanic. I'm hoping starting with default settings will help me isolate the problem. Thanks you. $\endgroup$ – Michael Natale Mar 30 '17 at 17:06

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe this can help too blender.stackexchange.com/questions/47343/… you can then link all your objects to a new scene with default values, effectively resetting them to whatever you want, default or otherwise. $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos May 26 '17 at 0:58

If I understand your question, I don't think there is.

You can load a .blend file without the saved UI, but this doesn't include settings in the render property panel (which is what I think you are getting at). These cannot (as far as I know) be divorced from the other data in the file.

You would probably need to create a new empty file (which should load default settings for everything), and then use File->Append to import the objects from your other .blend file into that new file.
