Thank you for your post Neil. This is going to make it much easier for me 
to manage my open files. I wondered if you knew of a way to group certain 
files together for the next editing session, so that you could be selective 
about which files appeared in the side bar without having to manage them 
manually each time. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
