The options on the File menu as is the custom contains the commands
for reading and writing experiment files, as well as starting
and ending the program.
Select an existing GSAS experiment to be used. If a name is entered
that does not exists, it is possible to create a new
experiment file from scratch.
Saves modifications to the current experiment file to disk (shortcut Alt-S).
Saves modifications to the current experiment file to disk
under a new file name
Reread .EXP file
Reread the last saved version of the experiment file from disk.
Deletes old history records to speed reading of the .EXP file.
Convert a standard ASCII file to the direct access format used by GSAS (and for UNIX, the reverse)
Exit EXPGUI (shortcut Alt-X or ^C)
C.2 Options Menu
This menu contains options that determine how EXPGUI runs.
Toggles archiving of .EXP files. When on, files are
saved prior to each save or run of expedt in a file named
[expnam].EXP.xxx.gz where xxx = 000, 001 (UNIX)
or in a file named [expnam].ZIP or [expnam].xxx (Windows)
Use DISAGL Window
When this option is set, results from DISAGL are
shown in a separate window. When it is not set, the results are
written in the .LST file.
Sort atoms by
Determines the order that atoms are displayed on the "Phase" pane
Atoms may be displayed sorted by number, atom type, site multiplity,
occupancy, or by x, y or z coordinate
Clicking on the heading above the atoms list cycles with the left
mouse button cycles through the atom sort modes. Clicking with
the right mouse button resets the atom sort mode to "number".
Sort histograms by
Determines the order that histograms are displayed on the
Histogram, Scaling and Profile panes
Histograms may be sorted by histogram number, histogram type,
original bank number, or diffraction angle/wavelength
When this mode is off, it is possible to modify parameters
and refinement flags for only a single histogram. For other settings,
it is possible to modify parameters and flags for groups of
histograms (see help for Mouse actions).
It does not make sense, however, to globally modify
instrument-related parameters and flags for different histogram types.
So global actions can be limited to a single class of histogram types
(e.g. TOF, CW Neutron,...), which allows these parameters to be set
for groups of similar histograms. Thus, if this mode is set to "All"
the Histogram and Profile panes are disabled.
This option is available in UNIX only, as there are different
ways that backspace can be implemented. When option is set
as "On," the backspace key is overridden to send a "delete"
character. If backspace does not work in a program such as
EXPEDT, change try the other setting for this option.
Normally EXPGUI prompts before rereading the EXP
file when GENLES, POWPREF,... are run (this is so that one can change
the experiment file and rerun with the current input). If this option is
set, the new file is automatically read without a prompt.
This option is not available in Windows.
Show EXPTOOL output
Normally EXPGUI does not show the output from EXPTOOL, when
actions like adding atoms, phases or histograms is performed.
If there are problems, this option should be set to "on"
so the error can be determined.
