Thanks for letting me know about the tutorial problem. As for
resetting the axes to the original view, redraw would not have done
that. In the next generation toolbar, I might be able to add a button
to support that. It already has a forward / back button to navigate
between previous views. By clicking back enough times, you'll get
back to your original view. Still, if you are deep enough in, a
"reset" button might be nice.

Yep, you have to train yourself to find that first error, the rest are
