Am I overcomplicating this?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Am I overcomplicating this?

Here's what I've started doing when I want to make a new profile:


1. Go into Configure>Profiles and copy an existing one

2. Go back to "prepare" screen, select that profile, and scroll through it changing things.

3. Now go back to the Configure>Profiles screen and select this profile

4. That gives me a dialog which has a button I can click to save all my changes.


This works, but it seems like there ought to be a single place I can both edit and save a profile. Is there? Or is my technique the best I can do?

    Click on the profile name in the main screen.  Down at the bottom are options:

    Create...Will take you to the dialog where you can make a new profile.

    Update...Will add the current over-rides to the existing profile.

    Discard...Will throw away the current over-rides and revert to the settings in the profile.


    Manage Profiles...Will take you to the regular Profiles settings dialog.


    If you have already created your new profile then make the changes you want and select "Update..." and your current settings will become the profile settings.
