I don't know why Cheri took this exchange private. I will amend my
original statement about buggy to "Bob Velke has not fully released a
new version that has bugs in it to the best of his knowledge and to meet
a forecast release date".
How many users use embedded citations?
And why not put the IN on the tool bar for a quick preview?
And did Cheri and Teresa ask to be beta testers and were turned down?
