    Maybe not to some of us newer members that are trying to learn.....
    Having them spelled out occasionally is helpful.

    Or, if I may ask, is there a “STICKY” post somewhere that has these collected and spelled out for those of us that are newer?

    Edited to add.... and sure enough, a couple of messages further down, someone referenced exactly what I was asking... AWESOME!
