Event display cannot read data products with an instance name
I am trying to use larsoft event display to read some 35t raw data that have both a module label and an instance name. The event display does not work if the product has an instance name (i.e. one cannot specify the label as "label:instance" in the configuration box.).

After some mistakes and wrong checks, it turns out the event display can read data products with an instance name.
In the dialogue window
Edit > Configure Drawing > RawDrawingOptions, the product label needs to be specified as
"ProductLabel:InstanceName" (note the double quotes). Isn't that great?
No, it's not, because the double quotes are stripped by the event display machinery and the next time the window is accessed one has to retype them again.
This is very much beyond LArSoft.
I have published a branch
lareventdisplay that does not solve anything but is still better code.

While there is no actual solution to the underline problem, probably lying in
nutools, a workaround has been provided that the users seem to be happy with.
Waiting for confirmation of the latter statement from the submitters (added in the watch list) before marking as resolved.
