Editing of Processes Source Code and Saving Edits
« on: 2019 September 22 00:36:35 »
I have moved the majority of the process icons that I use to the desktop.  There are several that I would like to modify.  If I edit the ‘Instance Source Code’ for a specific Process how can I save the edits?  When I close the Process icon the edits revert back to the original.  Can these edits be saved?

Example: Editing of AutomaticBackgroundExtractor Target Image Correction 'Correction:' from None to Subtraction.  How can this be saved?

Click the 'Commit' button at the top right corner of the code editor window. It will be an enabled green checkmark button if you have modified the source code.

Doing that.  When I close the Process down the changes are not saved.  How can these changes be saved?

Drag the triangle icon from the process window on top of the desktop icon. This will open a popup asking you to replace the current instance so click yes. Then save your project.

Thanks for the reply.  Yep - I discovered this later.
