 The "Locate Change Sets" feature lets me configure the streams to search and work items to search.  Is there a way to save a configuration so I don't have to re-select the streams to search each time?  I usually search the same streams every time, and only need to change the work items.

The most useful feature (for me at least) to add relevant search targets is to click on the green "+" icon in the 'Search Targets' menu, and select "Add workspace and flow targets shown in the Pending Changes view'; or you can select 'Add streams from project and team areas that I am a member of'.

Also, one of the best ways to 'save' and 're-use' a random or mix selection of Locate Change Sets [LCS] 'objects' is to put them in the favorites folder in the Team Artifacts view, then drag and drop the selection into the LCS editor...

Here's a listing of different ways to add 'objects' to the LCS editor:

Ways to add Work Items:
-Since RTC 4.0, you can drag & drop a selection of work items from various places in the UI (ex: The "Work Items" view, or from work items in the favorites folder in the Team Artifacts view)
-Since RTC 4.0, you can drag & drop a work item query from the Team Artifacts view. This will automatically run the query and add the work items.
-The work item picker dialog now allows multi-selection. Added in RTC 6.0.3 S5

Ways to add Change Sets:
-Since RTC 4.0, you can drag & drop a selection of change sets from various places in the UI (ex: The "Pending Changes" view, "History" view, "Search" view, etc.)

Ways to add Streams/Workspaces/Snapshots/Baselines/Builds:
-Since RTC 4.0, you can drag & drop a selection of streams/workspaces/snapshots/baselines from various places in the UI (ex: The "Pending Changes" view, "History" view, "Search" view, "Team Artifacts" view favorites folder, etc."
-You can also drag & drop a selection of team area nodes from the "Team Organization" view, which will add all streams owned by those team areas.
-You can also drag & drop a selection of project area nodes from the "Team Artifacts" or "Team Organization" view, which will add all streams owned by those project areas and all child team areas.
-You can drag & drop a repository node from the "Team Artifacts" view. This will show a confirmation prompt, asking if you want to add all streams in the repository.
-You can drag & drop a selection of build results. This will add their corresponding build snapshots.
-You can open the Locate Change sets editor directly on releases (shown on the "Releases" tab of the Project Area editor). This will add the corresponding build snapshots. 
 
-The snapshot picker dialog allows multi-selection. Added in RTC 5.0.2.
-The stream/workspace picker dialog allows multi-selection. Added in RTC 6.0.2.
