Great info, Rich. I tried ti all and it works perfectly. You're right no quirk,
just the way GIMP works. This is a treasure trove of good info for me. I was
wondering why it was so quirky, now I understand the really great features GIMP
has . Very clear explanation. The screenshots really help also.
