Species selections (=editor configurations)





Species selections basically are sets of species.

Technically the terms "species selections" and "editor configurations" (or simply "configurations") are synonymic. For a detailed description what is stored in an editor configuration see ´Editor configurations´.

You may use configurations to

This window provides several operations on configurations:

  • STORE (save a (new) configuration)
  • EXTRACT (= unmark all, then mark the species stored in the selected configuration)
  • MARK/UNMARK/INVERT (mix currently marked species with those marked in configuration)
  • COMBINE (unmarks all that are not in configuration. This does an intersection between the currently marked species and those from the selected configuration)
  • DELETE (delete a configuration)
  • RENAME (rename a configuration)

Each configuration has a comment which may be changed by editing the 'Comment' textfield. The 'Clear' button will remove the comment in two steps:

  • first all dated log entries (1st click)
  • then the rest of the comment (2nd click)

The number behind the species selections informs about the number of species stored in each.
