<para>Both simple and advanced query dialogs save recent
history, but the amount is limited: old queries will eventually
be forgotten. Also, important queries may be difficult to find
among others. This is why both types of queries can also be
explicitely saved to files, from the GUI menus:
<menuchoice>
<guimenu>File</guimenu>
<guimenuitem>Save last query / Load last query</guimenuitem>
</menuchoice>
</para>
<para>The default location for saved queries is a subdirectory
of the current configuration directory, but saved queries are
ordinary files and can be written or moved anywhere.</para>
<para>Some of the saved query parameters are part of the
preferences (e.g. <literal>autophrase</literal> or the active
external indexes), and may differ when the query is
loaded from the time it was saved. In this case, &RCL; will warn
of the differences, but will not change the user
preferences.</para>
