Hi Devin,

I wrote a plugin recently that allows you to set any properties or run
script snippets on startup. It's what I use to get around this

You can download it here <>

Here's the blurb:

This plugin is designed to run whenever you start up Revolution,
setting global properties or running script snippets to set up
Revolution as you like it. It was inspired by the fact that in Rev
2.7.x, allowInterrupts is set to false by default, meaning you cannot
escape from infinite loops :-)
