Just uncheck the box for "Assign New Element ID to Each New Element" in your Work Environment > User Preference Schemes > More Options panel as shown in the attached screenshot. As with all Work Environment panels, save your scheme and profile with a name so that you can quickly get those settings back if changed, or take your settings to another workstation.

Alternatively, so that you can have some elements with auto-increment and some without, leave the box checked and note that If, when you start placing elements with a tool, the ID field contains one or more numbers - however they are separated ... the last number will be incremented as you place additional elements. If the there are no numbers in your ID, nothing will be incremented.

If you later need to rename and/or renumber placed elements based on search criteria, the Element ID Manager can do that for you. See:

You're welcome.

Not sure what your next question is. I mentioned the Element ID Manager in my post. The only transfer settings capability is the eyedropper / syringe = Element Transfer Settings, which can be customized to only transfer specific settings from one element to another. Help topic and videos here:
