In Elastic Windows, hierarchical window layouts can be saved and retrieved in later sessions to reconstruct previous layout configurations rapidly. This is very beneficial for rapid task environment setup, if users engage in similar types of tasks frequently.
Users can also save multiple layouts of the same information space under different names. This gives them flexibility in using alternative layouts for different subtasks within the same context without the burden of recreating the layouts over and over again. Save and retrieve operations are performed by selecting the appropriate operation from the window menu.
