The menu bar at the top of the SasView window gives you access to additional features of the program:
The File option allows you load data into SasView for analysis, or to save the work you have been doing.
Data can be loaded one file at a time, or by selecting multiple files, or by loading an entire folder of files (in which case SasView will attempt to make an intelligent guess as to what to load based on the file formats it recognises in the folder!). Data can also be loaded by dragging and dropping files directly onto Data Explorer.
A SasView session can also be saved and reloaded as an ‘Analysis’ (an individual model fit or invariant calculation, etc), or as a ‘Project’ (everything you have done since starting your SasView session).
The Edit option allows you to:
copy and paste parameters between SasView analysis windows;
copy parameters from a SasView analysis window to the Clipboard as either tab-delimited text (compatible with Microsoft Excel) or LaTex-wrapped text;
generate a summary ‘Report’ of the most recent analysis performed;
reset parameter values in the P(r) Inversion analysis page;
freeze/copy fit results as separate data sets.
The View option allows you to:
show the Batch Fitting Results Panel if it has been closed;
show/hide the Toolbar of icons below the Menu Bar;
The Tools option provides access to a comprehensive range of tools and utilities. See Tools & Utilities for more information.
The Window option allows you to select which SasView windows are visible;
