or even longer in my case lol.
I do not try to learn all the tunes but always check to see what comes up.
Whatever happens, this thread is a great resource.
Eric, I must be losing my touch but I cannot find the icon to subscribe to this topic. I can see 2 places to unsubscribe but no place to subscribe. What am I missing??
Also - and here is my biggest problem - I don't have tabledit so I can't download and print any of the tabs and it drives me nuts. I've tried to get tabledit but I have an ipad so maybe that's why it won't work? Thanks for all you do for us here - we owe you!

Barb, TablEdit for the iPad is called TEFpad. It's really good although without as many features as the PC version (you won't miss them). I don't think they have a free trial version, but it's not expensive and well worth it--it includes a discount if you ever end up with a PC and want to upgrade. Do a search for "TEFpad" or just go to the TablEdit site; you'll find it.
