    7367Larger fonts improve the appearance with only a minor
    7468cost in size. The customization discussion in expgui_cfg.html
    75 now shows how to do this, but it could be quite a bit cleaner.

    78 Add Marquardt damping parameter
    79 <DD>
    80 Under "LS Controls" would be a logical place for this.
    81 Also, I think there is now a damping factor for Le Bail shifts, too.

    94 I do not like fixed background use, but agree that fixed points are useful
    95 for starting a fit. I would like to have a routine that fits a

     177where the feature was added. This list is far from complete.

     182Add Marquardt damping, LeBail damping to GUI
     183<DD>
     184These parameters are on "LS Controls" pane, along with
     185the convergence parameter. The <a HREF="expgui1.html">documentation for this
     186pane</A>
     187has also been expanded
     188to better explain what these options do. (7/01, 1.44)

     193Fits a Chebeshev polynomial to a set of fixed points input by a user.
     194If need be (not recommended, though) the background points
     195can be input to GSAS as fixed background values. (7/01, 1.44)

    143 <DD>
    144 The beige color of the bottom box on the phase pane is too similar to the
    145 yellow color of the refinement flag. This color is now a variable
    146 [expgui(bkgcolor1)]. The default value, #fdf, is a light violet that
    147 will probably drive some folks nuts. It can be customized.
     231A CIF import routine is now available. (10/00, 1.38)
