During a working session of Genbox, if you modify any report options, they
will stick DURING the session, even if you close the Report Options View and
reopen it hours later. However, when you exit Genbox and restart the
program, all reports return to their defaults. If you want to make the
changes 'permanent' you can update the defaults or save them under a custom
Report Options File that you can reload any time.

Subject: [GENBOX] Saving options in Everyone chart
After almost a year away from Genbox, I tried today to create some everyone
charts for two files that had been updated. When I was working on the first
file, when I left the chart options pages to switch focus persons and then
returned, the options were set the same as when I left. This surprised me
because it wasnt how I remember Genbox working in the past but I was very
pleased. When I switched to the other file though, all the options were lost
and I had to start again. For some reason, I closed down Genbox and started
it up again later. The second time, I lost all my option settings everytime
I switched focus person. I tried to use the same options feature but it
never gave me the option to reload my old options (the button for loading
sayed dimmed and didnt respond when I tried to click it).
Can anyone tell me what is going on here?
