Make Slicer Parameters box non-modal and add it to the Tools menu

The Slicer Parameters box is modal. This means that you can't interact with the help window while the Slicer Parameters box is displayed.

Making the box non-modal has some good UI benefits. E.g., you could interact with the slicer parameters from the graph as well as typing in the numbers in the box. You could put the slicer in the Tools menu where it is easy to find rather than having to select a slicer on a graph before the user even knows the slicer box exists. You could also make slicing available to data sets that are not currently plotted, which may be useful for batch slicing.

Am raising the priority of this, as it is irritating!
