I've seen comments that Panorama is required for various functions.
But, I have also seen coments about cautions, problems, etc., that I
did not really understand. So, I am still using the latest SNAP and
having no problems. OTOH, I don't know if I am missing something
either. [That's the penalty of being a techo-dummy on eCS.]

I'm not totally sure what I may have changed other than I've set the
'Close Lid' to do nothing. So far, it has worked just fine. [Makes it
easier to carry the TPad up/down the stairs than when it is open.]

Hmmm... I have LogScreen=0
BUT, I when I do a PrtSc, it works just fine.
I've never bothered to change it because of my oft-said
basic view of the world:
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I have nothing that I can find about 'unimix'...
Yes, there is a \mmos2\unimix.exe, but no *.ini anywhere that I see.
Should I have something? ISTR that Paul said his updates, current and
planned, are intended to avoid a user having to deal with this.

Lewis, I've got no problem with direct E-Mails w/ large files attached.
I send/receive much larger than that all the time. Your latest
patched Flash 9.xxx would be appreciated.
