Changing the axes scaling

By default, the x-y axes are scaled equally in ``Image'' mode (If the -2d flag is supplied at the command line, however, the default mode is ``Normal''). This makes profile plots in x-z difficult to view especially for high aspect ratio grids. Hitting the \fbox{\Large Aspect \normalsize} button with the left mouse button will toggle between ``image'' mode and ``normal'' mode, in which the data is scaled to fit the plot area. You can also do this by hitting the ``a'' key. The middle and right mouse buttons have no effect here.
