A profile is a set of preferences and defaults, that allows users to select different data and variables for various projects. Users can have multiple profiles, and switch between them. 

The Profiles screen is used to select the current profile, add new profiles, edit existing profiles, delete profiles, import profiles, and export profiles.

Profiles Screen

The Profiles dialog has the following controls:

  • Profile List – The Profile list displays all of the profiles currently defined under SEER*Stat. There will always be a Default Profile which you can use and modify. Each profile displays whether it is the current profile in use (green checkmark), the name of the profile, the data locations that are defined for it, the directories it uses for storage, and whether this profile is valid. A profile is invalid if any of its data locations are unavailable. You can click on profiles to select them. All commands are targeted towards the selected profile.
  • New button – Opens the Edit Profile dialog to add a new profile.
