Save current throttle
This menu entry allows to save the current Throttle window layout; it will save inner windows
of the current throttle properties, and Jynstruments if any.
When a Roster entry is selected, that menu entry is automatically updated. Using it will
create (or update) a default Throttle file for that Roster entry in <JMRI Preferences
Folder>/throttle/XYZ.xml where XYZ is the Roster ID.
Note that when saving a Throttle that is the default one for a Roster Entry, Function Buttons
customization won't be saved in that file, they have to be exported to the Roster Entry (from
the Edit menu, see below).
Save current throttle as...
Allows to save the current Throttle window layout using any file name and path. If this
filename is not the default one for a Roster Entry, then Function Buttons customizations will
be saved in that file.
It can particularly be used to create the default throttle layout (see Throttles Preferences

Export current throttles customization to roster
Push current Throttle window customizations to the Roster, in particular Function Buttons
customizations. See Roster Functions Labels Pane.
Open the see Throttles Preferences
The first part of the "View
" menu displays a small menu of 3 items - by
default, each with a check mark preceding the item. This corresponds to the 3 sub-windows
(Address Panel, Function Panel, & Control Panel) that are part of the throttle window.
As each sub-window has a minimize and close buttons, if one gets closed down in error,
this menu option allows you to restore the window again.
Another way to use this option is when using the features of the Throttles for decoders
that are not associated with a Locomotive (such as a lighted passenger car or caboose
or a Fred unit). In these cases, critical screen real estate can be saved by being able to
disable (or close down) the Control Panel. Be a little creative with the window resizing, and
you could have several of these custom Throttle windows in the same area as one single
complete Throttle window would take up.
Reset Function Buttons
Reset the function buttons content to default and reset their visibility.
If a Roster is selected, default button content will be loaded from Roster entry,
and, if the matching preference is enabled, buttons undefined is the Roster entry
will be hidden.
