Right click in the Hot List area to call up the Hot List’s context menu. Notice that there are a full range of options to control how Hot List items are displayed, to import and export Hot Lists, and to save outputs for only Hot List items. Select Clear to clear the Hot List.
Now select Total>Cakes>Food-King on the Navigator, right click to bring up the Navigator’s context menu and select Add to Hot List.
