  • Save & Close. Saves the search filter and closes the current screen.
  • Save & New. Saves the search filter and keeps the editing screen open and ready to create another search filter.
  • Save as Copy. Saves your changes to a copy of the current search filter. Does not affect the current search filter. This toolbar icon is not shown if you are creating a new search filter.
  • Cancel/Close. Closes the current screen and returns to the previous screen without saving any modifications you may have made.
