Although it is not necessary to save the settings for an operator or analysis, if you do, there are some advantages. By giving the settings a name, you can easily choose them in another recipe to perform the exact same action. In addition, if you include a particular named settings in more than one recipe, you can update the behavior of the related operator or analysis in every recipe, by editing the operator or analysis settings and then saving them. All recipes that reference the same named settings will automatically use the updated settings. If you edit an operator and make changes to the settings, you will notice that the settings still have a name, but the suffix <unsaved> appears. This indicates that, although the settings were associated with a named settings file, they no longer match the named settings file.
