Slideshow Widget Help
This widget lets you easily save many different views
of your data and then jump between them, save them to a file,
or read back a previously saved slideshow. It is similar
to the Set Home button on the DAVE Master widget but has
many advantages: it doesn't change the default HOME position,
more than one view can be saved at a time, and the views
can be titled in an informative manner. In addition, not
only the current viewing parameters, but also the positions
of the currently displayed widgets are saved.
In order to save a view, just click on SAVE VIEW. A
line will automatically be added to the display area identifying
this view. If you ever want to return to this view, just
click on the line. If may take a short while (10-20 seconds?)
for DAVE to jump to the view.
When this is chosen, DAVE decides on a name for the current
view. Otherwise the user can type in any descriptive name
Start slide show
When picked, this causes DAVE to cycle through all of the

End slide show

This allows the user to specify the amount of time to pause
in each view when cycling through a slide show.
