Editor configurations define
which species, groups and SAI will be shown inside the editor,
whether any of these is placed in the top area (always visible) or bottom area (scrollable) and
which groups are folded (in the editor).
Each configuration has a unique name and is part of the database, i.e. to save (changed) configurations, save your database.
Such configurations can be generated in three ways:
Using the first method gives you complete control over what exactly is stored in the configuration (see ´ARB_EDIT4 mode buttons´). The other two methods will
always add all SAIs associated with the selected alignment (and fold them as defined; see ´SAI Administration´)
always use the folding of the currently displayed tree
Description of configuration entries in ARB_EDIT4 "File" menu:
Saves any changes made to the currently loaded configuration. Note that it does not make much sense to save the "default_configuration" as it may be overwritten when the editor is started next time.
Save configuration as ...
Save the current state of the editor as named configuration for future editor restarts.
Switches to a previously stored configuration.
Similar to closing the editor and restarting it using a named configuration.
Reloads the loaded configuration (i.e. undos all configuration changes made since startup or last save of configuration)
