Matt, I mostly understand your question and I see what you mean about the extra folders and the fact that it is cumbersome to always define parameter aliases. At any rate, I think what you are looking for is the Tools --> Parameter Alias Editor so that your aliases are saved from one session to the next. https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/idv/docs/userguide/tools/AliasEditor.html https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/idv/docs/workshop/config/ParameterAliasEditor2.html Let us know how it goes.

They are different > resolutions so it puts them into these "folders" that show the LatLon > and resolution. It makes it very difficult to remember to put in an > alias for my u and v components so that I can plot true wind barbs and > other derived parameters. Is there any way to disable this extra "folder"? > > Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: ZZH-972869 Department: Support IDV Priority: Normal Status: Closed
