Thanks, Carl,

I am using the no program. I assume you're keeping updating it. Overall, 
it gets better and better, but that is good to know about spectral 
editing in Samp. I am tending to do a bunch of things in RX these days, 
but we're doing different things.

Try the free trial of SpectraLayers, it might really be the thing for 
page turns. Sweet incentive to buy before 12/28 ($250 vs $399).

Cheers,

Richard

I have RX5, but the SAM editing was easier for me to use without any practice. A lot better than it was 5 or 6 years ago, when I last tried it. The new program update itself still has some bugs.
