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.
