When you use the GUI it is nice to get instructions. E.g. . However, printing the instructions and the results in the same message board is not optimal, because the text remains in the message board together with the results.

Possible solutions:
- print 'the instruction text' but remove it from the board after few seconds or after next message
- draw the 'instruction text' using textText on the GUI and delete after few seconds
- write the 'instruction text' and the 'results' into 2 different boards, e.g. results on the message board and instructions on an additional pyFormex text display:  showText (in gui/draw)


As an example, the current message board after Tools/Query/Distance 2D looks like this:
"
* Distance 2D report *
[H -0.0530094, V -0.128209] 0.138735
starting point
left click somewhere on the screen
ESC to escape
one point created by left click
end point
left click somewhere on the screen
ESC to escape
one point created by left click
* Distance 2D report *
[H 0.327919, V 0.0271211] 0.329039
starting point
left click somewhere on the screen
ESC to escape
this was a right click or ENTER
"
