Saving a Collection of Instruments for Later Use

While developing an app, you often analyze data using the same set of instruments multiple times. You can save a collection of commonly used individual instruments and their configurations for later use in a custom trace template that you create. You can later open that collection from the Instruments analysis tool’s template selection window.

To save a collection of instruments for later use
  1. Choose File > Save as Template.

  2. Enter a template name.

  3. Specify a location for the template in your file system.

  4. Select an icon for the template.

  5. Enter a description for the template and click Save.


Select your saved trace template from the user section upon launching the Instruments tool, or select File > Open and navigate to the location of the template. You can use the template in any future testing regardless of the application or process you created it for.
