Yes, the look limits are defined by McIDAS string values: REM Image loop start frame and number of images to load: REM ?AFRMS - Antarctic composite REM ?FFRMS - Floaters REM ?HFRMS - Water Vapor REM ?IFRMS - Infrared REM ?MFRMS - Manually Digitized Radar REM ?VFRMS - Visible REM ?AFRMS "1 10 ?FFRMS "1 10 ?HFRMS "1 10 ?IFRMS "1 10 ?MFRMS "1 10 ?VFRMS "1 10 Your output, however, looks as though you were running a single station load. The Fkey menu image load page needs the user to toggle CTRL-F12 (CF12) in order to jump to the page that does the image loop loads. I just ran this here in my office, and I got a 10 frame loop just like I expected. This problem could also be related to your Gnome setup: the window manager may be trapping the CTRL-F12 key sequence. I vaguely remember going into the Gnome configuration and removing special meanings for several keystrokes that are used by the Fkey menu. I don't specifically remember if CTRL-F12 was one of them, however. I was originally going to say that since I don't have a Linux box as my workstation here at Unidata, I can't tell you if Gnome needs to be configured to not intefere with CTRL-F12 key strokes, but I jumped on someone else's RedHat 6.2 box; started McIDAS; and tested the loop loading from the Fkey menu. Everything worked fine, so I am left to conclude that either the machine's Gnome had been configured to allow the needed Fkey strokes (it was Don's machine), or CTRL-F12 is not trapped by Gnome. Please let me know if the problem persists after you check the currently used values for Fkey menu strings: TL ? If in this list you don't see the strings ?AFRMS, ?FFRMS, etc., then you should do a: TENTER "UNIMENU.DEF Tom
