If you are using ver 5.11 just look at the symbols just above the
individual information box but below the list of words with their drop down
boxes, neat the center is one that looks like an asterisk. If you hilite a
tag that is currently the primary just click on the asterisk, a box will
come up asking if you are sure you want to remove the primary designator,
say ok. Then click on the tag you WANT to become the primary and click on
the asterisk. The tags are now changed to the way you want them.
