      Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you. It seems that the line in your
      first clip that ended with ^$GetExpandedName(^##)$^%nL% was being wrapped & I
      didn't know enough about clips to see the error (it 'looked' fine) & that was
      stopping the clip from working as intended.

      It works very well & will fill the gap nicely ... thanks.

      The only drawback is that if (for instance) I am working on a HTML file, I need
      to save 2 versions of that file.... a 'publish' version & a 'bookmarked' version
      which is much less of a problem than trying to find the last edit position each
      time.... thanks again.
