    We just purchased a new home, and I am trying to figure out how to make my old 195" 2.35 aspect fixed AT screen drop down in front of our windows/doors.

I kept hearing something 'odd', but it wasn't until some recent changes that I realized that the screen casing was the culprit. Wrapping the outside with FatMat solved...

    Would it be possible to have a smoothing indication tickmark in the Graph drop down menu? You can see this information on graph legend but when choosing smoothing this is unconviently quite far away. Even two different smoothings could be chosen for comparison!
