F5} [Plot] tab

 The Plot page allows the user to create/clone or edit the list of
 plots that belong to this project. The page contains an editable
 listbox on the left that permits the user to modify the file name
 that will used to identify the plot the title of the plot and the
 type of the plot. Flair is using the timestamp of the generated
 files (under the selected filename) to find the status of the plot.
 Therefore it is highly recommended to use unique file names,
 otherwise you could have unpredictable results plotted.

 Gnuplot ( is used as the default plotting
 engine. Gnuplot is a portable command-line driven interactive data
 and function plotting utility for UNIX, IBM OS/2, MS Windows, DOS,
 Macintosh, VMS, Atari and many other platforms. The software is
 copyrighted but freely distributed. flair permits the full usage of
 the power of gnuplot, but for this some knowledge of gnuplot
 commands is recommended.

 During plotting the "Output" window will display all commands that
 are issued in gnuplot. In case of doubt of the plot result, please
 check the Output window.

 All plotting frames share the same header and footer, for entering
 general information about the plot

      Plot          Press this button to generate the plot. flair will
                    try to generate all the necessary files ONLY when
                    needed (e.g running FLUKA to produce the geometry,
                    running gplevbin to process the USRBIN files
                    etc..) and if everything is successful it will
                    display the plot.

                    flair keeps some time information of the
                    generation of each file and the associated
                    parameters. If flair finds out that the output
                    file exists and no parameter has changed, then it
                    will skip the processing of the file and create
                    directly the plot.

 Plot Types
 For the moment the following plot types are supported

     Geometry      Geometry plot, with possibility to visualize regions,
                   materials, lattices, biasing and magnetic field maps

     Usrbin        Perform 1D and 2D USRBIN plots

     Usr-1d        Plot output the of USRBDX, USRCOLL, USRTRACK, USRYIELD

     Usr-2d        Plot the double differential quantity from USRBDX

     Resnucle      Plot output of RESNULEi card as 1D or 2D

     Userdump      For processing and plotting the output of the
                   standard MGDRAW routine, activated with a USERDUMP
                   card. Useful for plotting the distribution of the
                   SOURCE particles.

   Fields and Buttons on Footer
                   In this text box the user and enter gnuplot
                   commands to modify partially or completely the
                   behavior of the plot. Special commands are the
                     "plot"    when this line appears (without the "")
                     "splot"   flair will issue its standard plot
                               command. Use this command if you want
                               to have gnuplot commands before or
                               after the "plot" command issued by

                      "replot" allow the user to add additional
                               plotting commands to the standard
                               flair one

                   With the gnuplot commands the user has full
                   control of all commands. For example issuing a
                   "reset" command gnuplot will ignore all the
                   settings from flair and the user has to manually
                   enter his plot.

                   You can add labels, arrows, text, modify the
                   palette, axes, position or size of the plot with
                   the use of the "Gnuplot commands" window

~~~~~~ - Multiple plots can be edited, plotted, saved, printed at once. * Select the multiple plots from the listbox. * To edit a specific field <Right-Click> on the field to enable it and change the value. All fields that are enabled will update their value to the selected plots
