Yes. I now see the checkbox on RX 5 in "save" but my mouse can't activate it. Any idea why it sits there tempting me but denying me its use?

The "Preserve Non-Audio Data" Option is available in RX5. You may have to "Export" the file to see it. It is one of the choices available along with BWF, etc. I suspect that Sound Forge may be stripping the metadata that you have entered. You can use BWF MetaEdit as a last step when you are done with the file. BWF MetaEdit is free and available at
