For example I wanted to alter the default for subdivSmoothness (for nurbs and subDs when I press 1, 2 or 3).

In which file do I have to go to alter the precision????

Window | Settings Preferences | Hotkey Editor

if you put 1 into the key box, then press find you'll see that the command being called is

setDisplaySmoothness 1

if you wanted to say have a higher level for each, you could assign 1 to

setDisplaySmoothness 2

and do something similar for each of the quality display hokeys (1,2,3..)

is that what you were looking for?

not really...

there, I can set which displaySmoothness Id Like to see only.

But assigned to the displaySmmothness are fixed values for example to CurvePrecision. And I wanna customize them...

but thx so far...

ok... it was really easy... darn thing I call my head...

just assigned to the hotkey 3 (thx for the pointer) following line

displaySmoothness -divisionsU 3 -divisionsV 3 -pointsWire 16 -pointsShaded 50 -polygonObject 3;

where pointsShaded is the value of the curve precision...
good thing about it if it is not ok, i still can go back to the default setting.
