      What I really want to see, is other clip programmer's learning and using
      these techniques. When I download clipbooks from other people, I'd like
      to find the Wizards and other user-interface components be easy to use
      and robust.

      By the way, manually modifying Project Managers INI file keys is NOT
      recommended. The program can get very confused if things are not
      done exactly right. In the example below R.S. mentioned some keys
      you could add to your INI file. But, since he forget some important
      details, his fix (as he gave it) will not work.

      What he forgot was:

      WMV-PM.7="Open backup files"
      WMV-PM._Open backup files="7"

      The names given in these two keys must EXACTLY match, including case.

      Again, I say, "manually editing the INI keys is not recommended!"

      I also thank Eric for having implemented the double-click. It is a very
      convenient shortcut in the wizards.

      And thanks to R.S. for the great review. I just hope it wasn't too
      technical for the Basic list. ;-)
