Well - depending on your power - it might really be more. Do the

For FD, you only send in the dupe sheets as I remember - so why bother?

There isn't any class checking currently in the program - TR doesn't
know what class you are in. Perhaps I will add this for next year.

Yes - the last few versions had this - use Alt-M to get there - or just
edit the log and replace "CW " with "DIG".

CT has different dimensions for some of the windows. Since TR's windows
don't overlap, their size is very critical. I can't do this type of
display without overlapping with some other information. I would rather
keep all the information up there so you can see it all the time.
