Yes, Steve you are a dinosaur!!
I have not tried that in awhile. But I do remember performing that task in
Maestro. Maestro had a lot of leeway and 3D Lightyear is more restrictive.
>From what I have heard, the new Lithyear will have even more restrictions.
Someone who has 1.5 will have to verify that information. I do think it is
still possible if you are using 3D Lightyear 1.3.
