Thanks very much!
It didn't work at first, than I looked at the dates and realized I had to switch to the Daily release.
Yes. Support was just added and therefore you need latest FreeCAD 0.18 daily build.
I got it to run on startup and in case anyone was curious this is how I did it:
-Installed the Autoload add-on from the add-on manager.
-Created a macro with the two lines of code above with the name Autoload_YourNameHere.py
-Tools>Accessories>Autoload Check the box beside the item labeled YourNameHere (Custom)
That is a fine example on how one can use the Autoload module. But note that such procedure is not needed, as the setting, once set, should persist. If it doesn't persist, on your side, then likely FreeCAD crashes on close and the (changed) parameter doesn't get saved.
