Accessing the save to group configuration
The 'Save to Group' configuration is found in the Network Options Dialog, accessible from the 'Options' drop down menu on the Toolbar.
Adding a Text Save Group
Group saves can be custom made to save to multiple locations at once. Whether it be wire queues, Item-stores, or both, the group save gives you that versatility. This particular save group is called a Text Group (see below). Clicking the "Add Text Group" button will populate a list of network "Wires" and "Item-stores" to choose from in the lower left pane. You can add as many save destinations as you prefer.
