1. Set options for 'Time', 'Position', 'Format' and 'Units' using the corresponding drop-down menus.
2. Click on the 'SAVE' button to save your preferences.

NOTE: The XChange 2 application can be used without logging in. 'Logging in' (page 11 of the XChange 2 User Manual) is required only when you use the mapping features.

NOTE: Before creating or editing Discrimination patterns and/or Tone ID Profile of your User Search Mode in the XChange 2 application, you must transfer your User Mode from your CTX-3030 to your PC. You can move your User Mode into either of two folders within the XChange 2 application: the 'SAMPLES' folder Samples folder Icon/Button (located in the red vertical area - 'Special Collections' section), which contains all factory-preset User Modes, or a User Collection which you need to create beforehand (it will be also displayed in the 'Special Collections' section as shown on a picture above).

If you wish to use the 'SAMPLES' folder, skip the next step and proceed to Step 4.

3) Create A Collection in XChange 2
A COLLECTION is like a FOLDER on your PC. All User Modes copied from the detector must reside in a COLLECTION that you create, and each Collection should be given a name and allocated an icon. You can create as many Collections as you wish.

To create a Collection in XChange 2,
• press New Collection Button in XChange 2 button on the Collection Controls bar:
