User Bucket Mode

User bucket is designed to let the user select some area of the beam. The User Bucket mode is initiated by User Bucket button within 2D submenus. The user bucket (ellipse) can be adjusted to desired position and shape. While in this mode the power content of the User Bucket is being automatically calculated.
