Launch Button Station

Pressing Launch Button Station on the Button Settings page pops up a window with a virtual web-based version of the button station. This can be useful for testing button behavior if you are not able to be near the button station during programming.
Checking the Long Press box and then clicking buttons is equivalent to long pressing the buttons.
