Edit a Protocol

You can change one of your protocols or extend an already existing one at any time.


  1. Select Protocols from the left menu bar.
  2. Click on the protocol in the list and click on Edit in the sidebar.
  3. Make your changes to the protocol.
  4. Select Save as... from the File menu or use the shortcut CTRL/⌘+⇧+s.
  5. Update the description if needed.
  6. Save the changes by Save As.

Tip: Often it is easier to start altering an already existing protocol. To save it change the name too and the only option available is Save as.


If you have issues saving the protocol, make sure you check these things first:

  • [x] When a Protocol is finished, no warnings or errors are indicated.
  • [x] Make sure you have a name, description and category.
  • [x] Check that the name is not already taken.
