If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.

You probably want to look into the various biasing options available to you, so that you only generate events which reflect the physics you care about.
If you choose to do biasing, you need to be aware that the event rate will (obviously) not reflect the underlying physics, and you will have to apply scaling factors to convert your observed events to true physical distributions.

The number of events is a regular int (not unsigned), and so is limited to 2^31-1.

To increase the number of events in your job, you can run multiple /run/beamOn commands in your macro file.

This won't work in the default configuration, because the same random seed is used at the start of every job (so all of your file would end up with exactly the same events). You can change the random seed, for example by using the system time, to get a different sequence for each run.
