Save Grid States

Saving eVolve Grid States

Save eVolve grid states can further customize and control workflows with custom groupings, sorting, and filtering of grids. This feature is available in all of the eVolve windows with grids and allows users to save the current format of the grid for later use. Grid States can be made, saved, and accessed by clicking on the Save Grid States icon wherever it is available. For help with customizing grids, please see Using eVolve's Dialog Grids.
