Morpho Trace Menu Overview

I have attempted to make this menu fairly time-and-motion efficient, where need be at some cost in clarity, since much repetitive work is done here: The intended pattern of use is _not_ obvious from inspection.

My intent is to allow as much digitizing work as possible to be done directly in the main graphics window, minimizing the number of selections needed in the menu area, and especially minimizing the number of text entries needed, while attempting to provide cues to minimize errors due to fatigue or confusion.

To this end, Skandha Morpho attempts to maintain a list of contours which you are digitizing on each frame, together with their approximate size and location on the screen, and to prompt you successively to enter them, giving their name and size and location (indicated by a crosshairs, center giving position and size giving bounding box).

Used as intended, on image sets compatible with this, this should allow one to digitize most contours with at most one menu-click each, plus one "Next Frame" click per frame.
