This raises a number of questions. If a dialog defaults to the
settings it had last time it was run, then:

  • What does the reset button do? Does it reset to some hard coded default (empty), or does it reset to the settings when the dialog was opened?
  • If I select a varable X in a dialog, and click OK. Then run a transformation which deletes X. Then reopen the dialog. Variable X would appear selected although it no longer exists. How should such situations be resolved?

Let's say I want to compute frequencies in PSPPIRE. I Open Analyze - Descipritve Statistics - Frequencies and select bunch of variables.

Then I click OK.

And then I go again to Analyze - Descipritve Statistics - Frequencies.

In SPSS I can see all variables I have selected (and if I clicked to draw graphs, that setting remain active too). In PSPPIRE this is not so. I need to set all settings again.

Is it possible to solve this?
