Hi Hardy,

as I said before, if you download 0.16 you'll see that you can save rollout
settings ni separate files in the GUI version.

If you click on the "Settings/Rolouts" menu you will see a window with all
the rollout settings and, in the bottom part, two (new) buttons "Save As"
and "Load". You will have the same buttons when, from the Hint window (or
from the Analysis window/panel) yuio click on the "..." button that allows
to change the rollout settings.

I think that what is implemented now is even better.

In fact you're asking to transform a Ferrari into a Porsche :))
