You can set the content of the dropdown menu with:
set "animation "labels [bird dog elephant]
you can get the list of items in the dropdown menu with:
get "animation "labels
Attached is an example.
I got this information from the "set" entry in the
vocabulary tab in the Help. I only know it might be
there because I already new that "set" and "get" are
the usual ways to work with objects.

To save an attachment to your computer, PC users should right-click (Mac users, click and hold the mouse button) on the link and then choose 'save target as' from the pop-up menu. A window will then pop up in which you can choose a location for the file.
