Default Mashing on beersmith?

So if I'm using a 10 gallon rubbermaid cooler and mashing my grains and then vorlauf, what is this process called on beersmith? Single infusion, light body, no mash out....temperature mash 1 step or 2 step...

I am just confused by the many categories

If you're not adding any additional hot water to raise the temp after dough in (other than sparging) you're doing a single infusion with no mash out. Light, medium, and full body refer to the finished beer and how many unfermentables are left in the finished product.. Light body is a low mash temp (148° or so), medium is middle mash temp (152° or so), and full body is high mash temp (156° or so). If you're doing a batch sparge, you select that version.
