Saving a setup or product file

Once settings are changed in Pickit they can be saved in the correct file. The Save button for the setup file can be found at the bottom of the Region of Interest tab. For the product file the button can be found both at the bottom of the Detection and the Picking tab.

Pressing the Save updates the active file with the new data. The Save as creates a new file with the new data. A name has to be given to this file. Pressing Reset restores the settings of the last time saved.
