Select this view for all open wells

It is a common scenario to open up a project (containing many wells) in Samples & Interpretations, and want to look at the same thing in all of them. Perhaps it’s the micro analyses, the list of sequence picks in a particular version, or a particular templated chart. To save some tedious clicking we’ve added a menu option to replicate the currently selected view, as closely as possible, in all open well tabs.

Open up your project and navigate to the view you want to see in one well. Go to View > Select this tab for all open wells.

  • The analysis suite filter (discipline, analyst, suite number) will be replicated for the Analyses tab.
  • The version and interpreted data type tab selection will be replicated for the Interpretations tab.
  • The selected chart tab will be replicated for the Charts tab, for wells which already have a tab for the same template (hint: you can use the menu option File > Open chart template tab for all wells… to initialise a chart template tab for every well in the project). The selected version is also replicated for the Charts tab.

Genera in Groups

A useful addition to StrataBugs 2.1 is the ability to include entire genera in groups. Previously if you wanted to do this, you would have had to find all the taxa from the genus (probably via a taxon search) and add them to the group. If you or a colleague added another species to the genus, you’d have to remember to add it to the group. The new system saves you this hassle and guarantees that the group stays up-to-date.

You should be familiar with the Taxon Database’s ‘Taxa’ window – this is your working list of taxa. Let me introduce you to its sister, the ‘Genus’ window. Open by choosing from the menu Taxa > Genera.


You can populate it with genera by hitting the search icon, or by dragging onto it species from any tables or lists in StrataBugs. Drag a genus from here onto the Taxa window to populate it with the member species. You can also drag the genera directly into your taxon groups. Go to the full post…
