Hello, I have a rather elaborate project going on where I could really use
background pictures as done in Whale04.mdl (WhaleSide and WhaleTop).  I can't
find the control where the files are specified.  I suspect they are "backdrops"*
but where is the control that sets them?  Please answer.

* Moray -> View -> Configuration -> Search Paths has a category "backdrops"
which points to ...\Moray for Windows\Maps which is where WhaleSide and WhaleTop
are located.

Right-click on the viewport name ('top', 'side', etc.), one of its items 
is for the backdrop.

Note:  the backdrop is limited in resolution and cannot be fixed to 
particular coordinates to allow for zooming into it for particular 
precision.
