35<H3>C.1 File Menu</H3>
36<DL><DL>
37The options on the File menu as is the custom contains the commands
38for reading and writing experiment files, as well as starting
39and ending the program.
40<DL>
41<DT>expnam<DD>
42        Select an existing GSAS experiment to be used. If a name is entered
43        that does not exists, it is possible to create a new
44        experiment file from scratch.
45<DT>Save<DD>Saves modifications to the current experiment file to disk (shortcut Alt-S).
46<DT>Save As<DD>Saves modifications to the current experiment file to disk
47        under a new file name
48<DT>Reread .EXP file<DD>Reread the last saved version of the experiment file from disk.
49<DT>EraseHistory<DD>Deletes old history records to speed reading of the .EXP file.
50<DT>convert<DD>Convert a standard ASCII file to the direct access format used by GSAS (and for UNIX, the reverse)
51<DT>exit<DD>Exit EXPGUI (shortcut Alt-X or ^C)
52</DL>

57<h3>C.2 Options Menu</h3>
58<DL><DL>
59This menu contains options that determine how EXPGUI runs.
60<DL>
61<DT>archive EXP<DD>Toggles archiving of .EXP files. When on, files are
62        saved prior to each save or run of expedt in a file named
63        [expnam].EXP.xxx.gz where xxx = 000, 001 (UNIX)
64        or in a file named [expnam].ZIP or  [expnam].xxx (Windows)
65<DT>Use DISAGL Window<DD>When this option is set, results from DISAGL are
66         shown in a separate window. When it is not set, the results are
67        written in the .LST file.
68<a name="sortatoms"></a>
69<DT>Sort atoms by<DD>   Determines the order that atoms are displayed on the "Phase" pane
70        Atoms may be displayed sorted by number, atom type, site multiplity,
71        occupancy, or by x, y or z coordinate
72<P>
73<IMG SRC="new.gif" HEIGHT=13 WIDTH=36>
74Clicking on the heading above the atoms list cycles with the left
75mouse button cycles through the atom sort modes. Clicking with
76the right mouse button resets the atom sort mode to "number".
77
78<a name="sorthist"></a>
79<DT>Sort histograms by<DD>Determines the order that histograms are displayed on the
80        Histogram, Scaling and Profile panes
81
82        Histograms may be sorted by histogram number, histogram type,
83        original bank number, or diffraction angle/wavelength
84<DT><A href="expgui.html#multiplehistogram">Multiple hist. selection</A><DD>
85        When this mode is off, it is possible to modify parameters
86        and refinement flags for only a single histogram. For other settings,
87        it is possible to modify parameters and flags for groups of
88        histograms (see help for Mouse actions).
89
90        It does not make sense, however, to globally modify
91        instrument-related parameters and flags for different histogram types.
92        So global actions can be limited to a single class of histogram types
93        (e.g. TOF, CW Neutron,...), which allows these parameters to be set
94        for groups of similar histograms. Thus, if this mode is set to "All"
95        the Histogram and Profile panes are disabled.
96<DT>Override backspace<DD>This option is available in UNIX only, as there are different
97        ways that backspace can be implemented. When option is set
98        as "On," the backspace key is overridden to send a "delete"
99        character. If backspace does not work in a program such as
100        EXPEDT, change try the other setting for this option.
101<DT>Autoupdate EXP<DD>Normally EXPGUI prompts before rereading the EXP
102file when GENLES, POWPREF,... are run (this is so that one can change
103the experiment file and rerun with the current input). If this option is
104set, the new file is automatically read without a prompt.
105This option is not available in Windows.
106
107<DT>SaveOptions<DD>Save the current values for "Override backspace",
108        <a href="#sortatoms">"Sort atoms by"</a>,
109        <a href="#sorthist">"Sort histograms by"</a> and "archive EXP"
110        in file ~/.gsas_config (c:\.gsas_config on Windows).
111<DT>liveplot_options<DD>Used to set options for liveplot,
112for example, the histogram to be plotted
