I have moved the files manually, but I would not want to move
multiple files that way again. Apparently my questions about
saving a .txt file name were meaningless as I have had to create
a new outline name before moving them.
Tomorrow, I'll try the method you describe for a new set of files.
This exercise has motivated me to get cracking on building
clips. So far, my skill extends only to a few lines and simple
Build me a clip that will do the job only if you have the time as
now I will be pestering you over on the Clip list. |8--)>
Without your counsel, I would have up a creek on this one, Jody.
