Take a look in the options.wrm file in your database, you will see lines like :

_VMap              -V -D GMAP  
_VSequence         -V -D FMAP
_VClone            -V -D PMAP

The "-D xMAP" says which display to use by default for each class. If you add a
new class called "linkage_group" then you can arrange for it to be displayed
using the GMAP (which is used for the Map class) by adding the following to your
options.wrm file:

_Vlinkage_group    -V -D GMAP

If you have problems then email me direct...
