Stuff Menu Help in the DAVE master widget
This menu should be rarely used
Search Help with Keywords
This is yet another way to pop up a help window to search the online help
If you are using snapshot to save images from DAVE and the image that
snapshot is saving does not appear to be the image on the screen, you can
do a Swap Buffers; this should change the image on the screen to match the
image that snapshot is saving.
This displays a widget which permits one to move through a series of images.
It can be used to switch image 1 and image 2 (thus switching colors). It
can also play through a series of 3D images, and more.
It can also be used when the -i and -e options are used to
display a series of intermediate surfaces generated by Simple_2D_wrap when
in diagnostic mode. Thus the progress of the shrink_wrap can be examined.
Show Energy Histogram
If energy data is mapped to a surface (-e command line option and "I" key
when in the DAVE viewing window) this permits the interactive modification
of which energy components are examined and how the energies are mapped to
display colors. Primarily to look at energies during a shrink_wrap.
Select Drawing Algorithm
When complicated slice outlines are specified and/or many bifurcations or
trifurcations are specified, sometimes dave is not able to correctly turn
the wireframe outlines into a proper surface. This widget allows manual
interaction with the process to ensure that a proper surface results.
Causes the current view in the DAVE viewing window to be set the the HOME
view. The same as the HOME button on the DAVE master widget.
Causes the definition of "HOME" to be changed to the current view. The same
as the "Set Home" button on the DAVE master widget.
Master reset. This resets the current view to the very initial default
view. It is useful when the system really gets confused and you see
nothing at all.
Resets the event queue. This is useful when the system seems to hang up
and ignore events (e.g., seems to ignore the mouse button, key presses,
button pushes, etc.).
This widget allows two users at remote sites to see the same view of the
same data and hence do remote collaboration and analysis of the data.
Each user must have a running version of DAVE and a copy of the dataset.
It also allows DAVE to exchange NURB surface data with Larry's Finite
Element Shrinkwrap program.
This widget is used to pop up a text label on the screen. This label
can be saved into a movie script for later playback.
This widget allows the user to save many views (as with Set Home, but
many views can be stored). Each view can be labelled informatively and
returned to easily.
This option is used in conjunction with Edit Data Planes to display an
arbitrary plane through the data and enable the interactive outlining
of objects in the arbitrary plane. Choosing this option enables a
pop-up menu (button 3) when the mouse cursor is in the Display window.
See planimeter help (choose Options on the pop-up menu) for more details.
See also Edit Other Objects for creating polygons. See Edit Crosshairs for
creating linked line segments in 3D.
Pops up a widget that records images created by DAVE and
also writes them out to a file (or two files if in stereo). Also
plays back movies. Note: the movie stuff here
is totally different from Create Movies on the Goodies menu.
Given two points in 3D this widget finds the best path between them.
