As usual you have great understanding of this issue too. I'll study these links
to learn more, but I'm very glad i simply used undo or delete to get rid of that
since it looks like I opened a can of worms.

I've completed my CD label and panels and since I don't have that Transformation
Selection in the labels view, it looks like I'm free from worrying about it.

Thanks for all your great help,
