30the current features.
31
32<H2>In Progress</H2><DL>
33
34<DT>
35WWW links
36<DD>
37Implement context-sensitive help that brings up web pages
38from local storage (or a web-site?).
39
40
41</DL><H2>Perhaps someday</H2><DL>
42<DT>
43Excluded region editor
44<DD>
45This would make most sense to do graphically, somehow
46involving liveplot.
47
48<DT>
49A CIF data import filter
50<DD>
51This will require some attention to creating/editing
52instrument parameter files,
53as well as choosing data from the "right" loop_.
54
55
56<DT>
57Fixed background
58<DD>
59I do not like fixed background use, but agree that fixed points are useful
60for starting a fit. I would like to have a routine that fits a
61Chebeshev polynomial to a set of fixed points input by a user.
62
63<DT>
64Export to Platon
65<DD>
66The platon viewer runs in UNIX and Windows
67(http://www.ccp14.ac.uk/tutorial/platon/). It would be nice to be able to
68export in the correct format and perhaps even fork the viewer.
69Recommended by Lachlan Cranswick.
70Original URL: http://www.cryst.chem.uu.nl/platon/ & 
71source: ftp://xraysoft.chem.uu.nl/pub/
72
73<DT>
74Interface for Fourier routines
75<DD>
76Perhaps with two parts: map compute set up options and viewing options.
77
78<DT>
79Guide for new users
80<DD>
81Lachlan suggests a "Wizard" but perhaps a set of introductory
82web pages might be more tractable.
83
84</DL><H2>Brand New</H2><DL>
85
86<DT>
87NIST accessibility requirement
88<DD>
89NIST requires that all images in WWW pages have an ALT= tag included.
90This has been done on all the documentation HTML pages, despite the
91fact that (in this case) it adds no new content for anyone.
92
93<DT>
94Error reporting
95<DD>
96When an invalid entry is specified, (for example 1..0 is typed, instead
97of 1.0) EXPGUI ignores the entry and (now) it is also displayed in red, to
98flag the error. This only happens for entries on the main panes. For
99entries on modal dialogs (where there a "done" or "keep" button), these
100errors will be reported only when the button is pressed.
101
102<DT>
103Import Atoms/Import Phase
104<DD>
105A CIF import routine is now available
106
107<DT>
108Change space group
109<DD>
110A mechanism where one can specify a new space group, cell,
111and reinput all atoms for the phase (to get site syms correct). One can
112keep the old atoms for the phase or replace them. It is possible
113to do this manually or with a file import capability.
114At present the only file type accepted is
115the .CEL format from PowderCell. New format filters can be "dropped" in
116place.
117
118<DT>
119Import Atoms/Import Phase
120<DD>
121This appears on the add atoms & add phase dialogs and draws on the above.
122
123<DT>
124Transform Atoms
125<DD>
126There is now a "xform atom(s)" button on the phase pane that
127can be used to transform coordinates,
128globally set the occupancy & Uiso and switch atoms between
129iso/aniso and erase selected groups of atoms
130
131<DT>
132Spherical Harmonic (ODF) Preferred Orientation
133<DD>
134done
135
136<DT>
137Delete phases
138<DD>
139Instead -- change phase flags on the histogram page (appears when 2+ phases
140present).
141
142<DT>
143Define background types
144<DD>
145The pull-down background selection menu now shows the names of the
146background functions
