I'm guessing these templates either began life in Word or were created by someone more familiar with Word than FM -- this is a common naming convention in Word templates. IIRC, Word recognizes the parts on either side of the comma as alternative names, so the "H2" part makes keyboard tagging easier. (It's been more than a decade since I did any serious work in Word, so I may be misremembering the reason, but I'm sure it's a Word-type tag name.) In any case, this naming convention serves no useful purpose in FM, and you've now discovered a fairly significant drawback. So why isn't changing it an option? Richard Richard G.
