There was a valuable discussion in V14 beta forum about documented and undocumented parameters in config.dat. Unfortunately the discussion isn't accessible anymore due to restricted access to older beta forums.

Default parameters:
{ config

# Configure the number of undos that are available for each edit
backup_depth 10

# Edit milestone configuration
milestones_per_edit 10
mods_per_milestone 10

# Define the 'preview' preroll duration in seconds
preview_preroll_secs 3

# By default EDL reel IDs are limited to 8 characters in length.  Set to 0 to lift this limitation.
edl_limit_reel_length 1

# By default, when trimming a cut with two moving sides, Lightworks will monitor the audio from the side
# closest to the current-time - this can lead to silence when that side of the cut is black. To automatically
# monitor the non-black side, set this value to 1
trim_avoid_silence 0

# By default, popped out tiles are revealed in the Content Manager.  Change to 0 to reveal them on the desktop instead.
reveal_tiles_in_bins 1

# Configure the contrast for timeline waveforms. Lower numbers will be darker.
waveform_colour_scale 0.8

# Define the central proportion of a timeline segment that can be grabbed for drag/drop.
# Set to 0 to effectively disable segment drag/drop
stripv_segment_drag_size 0.5

# By default, tiles can be dragged/dropped into timelines. Set to 0 to inhibit this behaviour
stripv_accept_tiles 1

# By default, tiles can be dragged/dropped into a viewer. Set to 0 to inhibit this behaviour
viewer_accept_tiles 1

# By default, bin groups are sorted when viewed in Content Manager.  To respect manually ordered racks, set this to 0
sorted_racks 1

# Pressing replace/insert will by default create a new edit if there isn't one present.  To inhibit this behaviour, set this to 0
create_edit_on_demand 1

# Lobby thumbnail layout
num_projects_across 4
num_projects_down 3

# Additional entries can be added here





} config

In addition to the default parameter there are some more. Based on different posts I collected those shown below:

####################################################################
# Additional entries can be added here
####################################################################

# for turning off the automatic edit creation when Inserting/Replacing
create_edit_on_demand 0

#Improved edit backup procedure to resolve performance issues with large edits, primarily during audio mixing
decoupleEditBackups 1

#Show progressive SD formats
allow_progressive_sd_export 1

#V14 Lobby layout
num_projects_across 4
num_projects_down 3

} config

Not many, and I don't know whether everything shown above is still valid with V14 release nor whether other parameters (new, or used in older version) will work properly.

Any suggestions?

Just a word of caution: in that same thread in the beta forums Great White advised that these were undocumented commands and were very much in the category of "use at your own peril". They can have unexpected results.
