4  Changing plot settings

The plot settings may be changed in a series of submenus. The options set using the submenus can be saved using the (s)ave option from the menu. This saves all of the current options to a file called splash.defaults in the current directory, which is automatically read upon starting splash the next time. To revert to default options, simply delete this file. Pressing `S' from the main menu saves both the splash.defaults file and also saves the plot limits to a file called splash.limits. This file is a simple two-column ascii file corresponding to the minimum and maximum plot limits for each column of data. Thus saving using 'S' means that exactly the same plot can be plotted next time splash is invoked, where saving using 's' means that the plot settings will be the same although the limits will be different. To reset the plot limits either adjust the limits and press 'S' again or simply delete the splash.limits file.
