Hi Bill,

It seems as if "Load Saved Keys" works as you describe. Are you implying
that each GCO file has this explicit list saved within it and the the
button causes it to be fed into the Keys list? Once you understand the
concepts it is easy to use (you just have to remember to do it each time
that you re-use a different GCO file.

Thanks,
Robin
