Items below are optional:

Signal Units Displayed:   None     on Y-axis     append to Title    
Median-Smoothing Neighborhood: (Defaults to no smoothing)
Layout of Plots:   # of rows:   # of columns: (Blanks are OK)

Color Indices for Lines:
    (in IDL style, e.g., [20,40,60,80,100] or findgen(20)*10 -- not to exceed 243, or use these)

Optionally enter values between 0 and 0.2 for the following fractions to adjust spacing between plots:
Fraction between columns:     Fraction between rows:    
Fraction at top of page:          Fraction at bottom of plot:
Fraction to right of plots:         Fraction to left of plots:    

TDI can be used in the signal fields. For math on Signals which are on different timebases, Signal-Math TDI functions are used automatically.

Other Optional LISTING Inputs:
