Issue Details

When creating an array on the front panel, a 1-D array is obtained. What if I want a 2-D array or simply any other number of dimensions for that array? 


You can add a dimension to an array by right-clicking on the index display (to the left of the array) and selecting 'Add Dimension' from the shortcut menu.

You can also do so by dragging or resizing the index display until you have as many dimensions as you want (in this case, you need 2 dimensions since this is a 2-D array).
