    Hi Joy, You are right. The feature is not working correctly in NoteTab Light (and Std). NoteTab Pro does it right, which is why John is not seeing the issue.

      Hi Joy,

      You are right. The feature is not working correctly in NoteTab Light
      (and Std). NoteTab Pro does it right, which is why John is not seeing
      the issue.

      Hopefully this won't be too hard to fix...
