Configurations can be modified, exported and imported, or reset to the default settings from the Configurations dialog.

As soon as any change is made, the configuration becomes modified, but a new configuration is not created yet, the modifications are only stored.

If you reset the configuration settings, you lose the modifications, and it is not possible to restore them. To prevent this, a new configuration can be made which stores the personalized GUI settings.

The available functions are described in the table below.
