Auto Explorer window

The Auto Explorer window lets you control the unattended exploration of fractals.

Going from top to bottom the controls are:

Note: In Advanced mode, this window is nonmodal, meaning you can switch among fractal windows while this window is open; the Exit button is then labeled Close.
