DEFLOOP REST loop
The DEFLOOP SAVE option saves the state of the workstation display by storing the display parameters in User Common. The display parameters include the loop bounds, dwell rates, image and graphics on/off state, cursor state, nortel key (N), and loop state. The REST option restores the loop with its saved settings to the Image Window.
You can use either DEFLOOP or the F Key Menu pseudocommand *S to save the state of your workstation display. They use the same filing system to save loops.
You can restore loops 1 through 9 to a briefing window created with the BRIEF command. All the loop settings except the cursor position, image on/off, and graphic on/off are restored. To restore the loop to a briefing window, use the MOVIE command with keyword WIN or make the briefing window active and press the keyboard key corresponding to the loop number between 1 and 9. Press L to manually start or stop looping, A to advance a frame, and B to back up a frame in the loop.
Always add new loops consecutively to save disk space since you will need 16 Kbytes on disk to store the context for a loop.
