Analysis Packs

The Analysis Packs feature provides a more convenient method for sharing or transferring a set of analyses from one computer to another. This is similar to the import/export analysis feature but allows you to include multiple analyses across one or more instruments.

The Export/Import Pack options can be found under the File -> Chart menu of the Console menu bar:

Exporting a Pack

Use the Export Analysis Pack dialog (see below) to select a set of analyses and create a pack file. The pack file is a compressed zip file. Click on the + button to select analyses to add to the pack.

When you click on the + button the Select Analyses dialog will be displayed (see below). Type the symbol in the input box and press Enter or Tab to display the available analyses. Select the analyses you would like to include and press the Add and Close or the Add button.

For convenience, the Add button will keep the dialog open so you can choose another symbol. When you are finished, click Add and Close to dismiss this dialog.

When you have completed selecting all of the analyses for the pack, click on the Export button at the bottom of the Export Analysis Pack dialog. For convenience all of the settings in this dialog will saved for the next time you use it.

Export Templates

Templates are useful in cases where you frequently export different sets of analyses to one or more users or transfer files between computers.

This will launch the Save As Template dialog. Enter a name for the template and click the Save As button (see below).

The template can then be applied by choosing it from the Template drop down at the bottom of the dialog.

Importing a Pack

Use the Import Analysis Pack dialog to import analyses from a pack into your workspace. A prefix can optionally be added to each analysis. This can be useful to identify where the analyses came from or to avoid naming conflicts with existing analyses in your workspace. You can selectively choose which analyses to import. By default, all will be selected.
