Set up your own Project Template with your preferred settings.
Or Track Templates which you can open in any new project.

What an odd thing to say.

What meter settings are you referring to?
I think if you set up a project or track template with your preferred settings, they will be saved for the next time you open that template.
Maybe a more clear explanation of what you want will help us help you.

Apologies, I didn't intend to come across so confrontational - it's just that OF COURSE if you set up a project file - in any software application - in a certain way, you can re-use it in future. That's like a Word user saying "I've set all my fonts to a particular style - how can I apply them to other documents?" and someone saying "Well, just base future documents off that one". 

As stated, the question is how would I load a bunch of meter settings into another project? - that's the nested right-click menu items for Peak Hold / Db range / Peak vs. RMS etc.?

- These settings don't appear to be stored as part of the workspace (which surprised me), and they don't seem to be stored in screensets either.

Each time I revisit another existing project, I don't want to have to go through what must have been around 30 mouse clicks to set up the meters how I like. It's not a major gripe, I just wondered if it's possible.

Its been a while since I tested storing meter preferences in Workspaces.  I do remember a discussion about it that I participated in.  I do recall that preferred meter scales are saved somewhere.  I will see if I can try to find that thread.

ADDENDUM:  Still looking here and here. Not sure if either of these threads address your specific issue.  Maybe I am misremembering about meter preferences being saved in Workspaces.  I will try to find my tests.

I mistook your post count as experience with DAWs. 😕
It seems like the only items you can change globally are the colors or whether the meter is segmented or not, and a couple of other things. You've probably already discovered that, too.

I'm not aware of a way to "load" meter range changes into an existing project.

But for future projects, just create a new project, set all the meters and save it as a template (.cwt).

You have to set each View's meters thru their Menus: Track View, Console View, & Inspector. Very tedious.

Right-clicking and changing won't retain upon saving.

I once Feature Requested having all the meter settings in one place with a Set As Default button in Preferences so you could 'set it and forget it.'
