Saves plot settings (line and symbol styles and sizes, scaling, etc.) to a file.

Dialog Box Options

Save in

Lists the available folders and files. To see how the current folder fits in the hierarchy on your computer, click the down arrow. To see what's inside a folder, click it.

The box below shows the folders and files in the selected location. You can also double-click a folder or file in that box to open it.

To open the folder one level higher, click on the toolbar.

File name

Provides a space for you to type the name of the file.

You can use * as a wildcard. For example, you can type *.* to see a list of all files.

You can also type the full path of a file. For example, you can type c:\myplots\data.set. Or, if you have used a long filename, you might type c:\myplots\settings for report plots.

Save as type

Specifies the filename extension of the file you are saving.

NOTE: If the Automatically read preference file based on filename option under the General command on the Options menu is checked, then when opening a data file for a new document DPlot will check for the existence of a preferences file (previously saved with this command) with the same filename and extension of ".set", first in the folder where the data file resides, then in the default preferences folder (%APPDATA%\DPlot\Preferences). If found, that preferences file will be processed. This might be a handy option if you have data files which frequently change, but you don't want to go through the same formatting steps each time you open that file. This option is not applicable to DPlot files, which by definition contain all of the formatting options that would normally be saved to a preferences file. When opening multiple files, this option is only applicable to the first file selected.
