Kathy,

I'm well aware of your posts and problems. I also said:

>>Having said that, certainly, if there are items that SHOULD have
translated and didn't, then Bill will need to take a look at that.

I don't have the answers and wasn't trying to give any.

Paul

Paul--
It would be helpful if you read the original messages about this. A
file that was exported, then immediately re-imported into Genbox was all
messed up. This isn't about "transferring the nuances" of one program
into another. This is about Genbox's ability to maintain the integrity
of data.
