Here's the mystery -
Running 7.2 on XP, sp2. I only have the one maker.ini (the one in the  
Program Files folder). I did a search through the entire C drive for  
the second one.  Nothing shows up. Of course, when I move the TEXT  
option to the head of the list in the Program Files file, it doesn't  
change how the paste function works.  Any hints where my other  
maker.ini might be lurking??

There's the right way and the wrong way.
Then there's my way - which is like the wrong way, but faster.
