Arbitrary Waveform questions

Hello Guys,

i'm new to the arbitrary waveforms, so so please excuse me if im asking something thats maybe obvious.

I have a 33220A and want to use the a custom waveform. Its a mixed signal, and the total length is 250 seconds (to test a device).
I created that signal in Keysight BenchLink Waveform Builder Pro and sendet it to the 33220A. 
Now i got 3 problems:
1. In the "Send Waveform" Screen the Frequency is set to 4 mHz (250sec). I assumed that would the the default frequency for that signal. But its not so. Everytime i load the "Arb" signal, i have to reset the Frecuency and Amplitude. 
Can i assign a default frecuency or amplitude to a signal. Or is the only way to do it with store/recall state? (because then its posible)
2. If i select my arbitrary waveform and 102 seconds passed, when i turn off and on again the "Arb" waveform or the output, the waveform doesnt start from beginning, it continuos at the 102 seconds. Is there a way to restart the "Arb" Waveform? Or do i have to do it with store/recall state?
3. I would like to pass my waveform just 1 Time to my device, because i can disconnect my device only when the signal is 0Vdc.I could add a very long 0Vdc signal after my waveform, but then i need some way to restart (question 2) my waveform, when i want to test my next device.
Can i run the arbitrary waveform just 1 Time?


I think i can do everything with store/recall state, but i would like to know if there is a better solution to this.

Best regards
Dorian
