I see.......  I did run across that thread but seemed silly that someone
would say it works but not tell the world how.  That's really too bad
because the truth is that it did work right in .21.  So if the dev's are so
certain that it really works (and works better), why can't they provide
documentation on how to click the right buttons?  It's obviously not
intuitive like in .21 because it just worked.  I've tried everything but a
hammer and going back to .21....
