Dancers (screen top left) indicate the starting setup for the getouts displayed
on this page. The Perm # (displayed immediately above the dancers) is used by the
program to uniquely identify the formation and dancer positions.
The 'last call was' field (displayed immediately below the dancers) shows the call
just executed (i.e., the call within the current sequence that got the dancers into the current setup).
The list of getouts (large list box at screen bottom) shows the available getouts from the current setup.
Since a C1-level sequence is being written, only getouts up through C1 are shown.
Each getout within the list box shows the level of the getout, the number of times the getout was used, and the

database. If this field contains 'CSDS', then the getout was automatically created by the CSDS program.
The Private checkbox indicates whether or not the getout is private. Private getouts
are not given to other users when database records are exchanged.

short sequences (a.k.a. opening biggies).
