A good example when to use the Configuration 'Apply' button?

Alteryx Alumni (Retired)

I have a very simple question.  Is the Apply button the same function as a Refresh?


The Apply button in the Configuration window has been there but I never noticed it.  Can you give me an excellent example when I use it?  I typically disable my auto-config setting and thought Apply would be the same as Refresh but a Refresh doesn't happen.

Even I do have same question...Can anyone brief on "Apply" functionality on Configuration Window?

I notice that when the TEXT INPUT configuration panel has lost focus then double clicking the checkmark icon will return focus to the configuration panel.  Clicking elsewhere on the panel will do the same thing. 


It may be a vestige from an earlier version. As far as I can tell it is not documented and not very useful.
