LOL - that's not going to happen. I would love to be able to simplify the
manual, but our users demand start-to-finish procedures for everything our
product does. So we're stuck with procedures that sometimes span 100

That' s why I'm pressing for a help file, so we don't have to generate the
same steps over and over and over....
