      Hi All,

      Sorry, this was a missed feature on my part. I may have seen this before
      and known about it but I have always used NoteTab the other way and now it
      is just as if I never knew this and I'm learning it for the first time.
      Probably a sign of Alzheimer's. Ray is correct and that is the way it
      works for me also.

      Thank you for the correction Ray.
