FrontEndExecute[ FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup[ "RefGuide", "Export" ] ] 2) Evaluate the expression you just pasted. This will open the reference guide entry for Export[] in the Help Browser. 3) Scroll to the end of the entry and locate a cell that reads "Additional Information." 4) Click on the triangular dingbat at the left of this cell to expose a sizeable amount of material. 5) Locate the subsection that is headed "GIF". 6) Note the option named "Loop". This is what you are looking form. Note that this option is a suboption to the option ConversionOptions. Export[<file name>, <graphic list>, "GIF", ConversionOptions -> {"Loop" -> <value>} ] > 3) How do I set the axis in a Plot to a logarithmic scale? You can use the Log*Plot[] functions that are defined in the Standard Package Graphics`Graphics`. FrontEndExecute[ FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup[ "AddOns", "Graphics`Graphics`" ] ] -- P.J.
