2) With regard to my question about the word "selection," the 4th box... The meaning of that word would normally be self evident. However, not understanding before that you could have a "partial perspective" (retain some aspects, but not all, and leave some of those boxes unchecked) didn't make sense then because I had assumed that one would always want the same "selection" if they were choosing to use that perspective.

Understanding the flexible use of perspectives makes it all make sense now.
Thank-you much!


Many thanks to Leila for so clearly formulating this nut, and thanks to whpalmer4 for so elegantly cracking it! It was not until I read your conversation above that I could start understanding the meaning and value of the restore setting.
