The History and the Log

The dates resulting from the eight most recent operations with the software are kept in a "history" list. Any of these may be selected to restore the display to that date.

Operations are recorded in a log if Log results is checked. When the log is empty the View log button is disabled. If the results are not being logged then the last result can (usually) be added to the log by clicking on Log this result. This allows logging only of results that are found to be interesting.
