PS finally getting somewhere with 'Inventor'Smile


Makes perfect sense and confirms all my fears. Thanks for the reading material I'll get started on it!

Glad to hear your getting on with Inventor, I've still been meaning to get around to having a play with it!

No worries re inventor, you got enough on your plate and making a great read so wouldn't want to distract you.
