First - please change the subject to be match what you are talking about
when you send items to the list.  This makes it easier for all of us.  OK?

If you are making changes to /usr/OV/app-defaults/Nvevents, then make
certain that you do not have a local copy of Nvevents in your $HOME
directory.  Those settings will take precedence.

This entry should make nvevents startup not attached to the map (your #1)
nvevents.outside              : True

And this entry should make it come up in list mode (your #3)
nvevents.initialPresCard      : False

But I don't understand your #2:
      2) Stop Control Desk.
If you start a process which is defined as running in the control desk,
then it will start as well.  If you don't want those apps to run in a
desk which is attached to the map, then you will have to edit their
app-defaults files and see if you can find an "outside"
entry for them as well.

Also, make sure the when you edit these files that you do NOT end your
changed entry with a trailing blank, i.e., if you type "True " rather than
"True", X will not return the correct value.   That's the way X works and
it can be troublesome.  I am usually careful about having at least one
space on either side of the colon, too, but that may be just superstition
on my part.

And finally, you may want to log out and back in again if you are using the
CDE, because sometimes Xdefaults don't get re-read correctly while your CDE
session is up.  I know that sometimes you can do a merge (xrdb -merge) but
I have also seen that fail too.

And yes, events are color coded based upon  the severity defined in
trapd.conf.  You can change this with Event Customization.

     I am having a problem with Nvela and nvevents.  None of the
that I make seem to work.
They are in /usr/OV/app-defaults.   I am trying to get:

     1) the Event window to seperate from the Control Desk on Startup.
     2) Stop Control Desk.
     3) Have the Events View start as a list and not cards.

     One last question,  in the events window, are different types of
suppose to display in different colors.
     IE. Critical - Red,  Major - Green

Thanks for any assistance you can offer.
