Description wolframgarten 2011-04-07 11:55:06 UTC
Exporting an animated GIF using File/Export produces a static GIF. Using Kontext menu/Save as picture exports an animated gif. This should be adapted in File/Export.

getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity".
For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.

The work-around is acceptable but two things need clarification. In English the context menu item is save image rather than picture and the context menu is the one that appears with right-click on the image. If you select the image by outline, as you would for a group, the context menu is different. Not realizing that the animation was created as an atomic entity and not finding "picture" on any context menu, I did not realize that this was a solution. Perhaps this work-around could replace the obsolete help description for saving an animated GIF.
