Hi,

 you can do something like this:

launch
order=NLO
fixed_order=OFF
shower=OFF
# you can edit parameter here like: set mt 170
launch
order=LO
fixed_order=OFF
shower=ON
# you can edit parameter here like: set mt 170
launch
order=NLO
fixed_order=ON
shower=OFF
# you can edit parameter here like: set mt 170
launch
order=LO
fixed_order=ON
shower=OFF
# you can edit parameter here like: set mt 170

Cheers,
