Hi Blake,

Yes, understood Scott's method. I was wondering about how to do it  
with halos. I tried to do what you suggested and learned a few things  
(like how to inspect a window, which caused some head-scratching  
until I found the 'debug' menu).

But, I wasn't able to create a second, named transcript.

Anyway, no big deal. Scott's method is simple and what I needed. I  
was just curious about the halos (which I haven't used much, yet.)

Thanks for your help.
