We are using transactional replication in SQL 2008 for our data warehouse. Periodically, we need to add articles to one database or another and we have to re-initialize and generate a new snapshot. However, when the new articles are added, the default settings override the existing settings. The two settings we need to persist are "Copy non-clustered indexes" for tables and "Copy permissions" for all other article types. Any help in changing the defaults for SSMS is greatly appreciated!
