    I had a look at that video and gave it another go doing it that way.

    I think my end result is considerably better than what it was.

    Just proves with practice I will get better.

    Think I was saving with changes applied. I may have to go back and stack some of my m42 to see the difference with embedding the changes. That is useful information thanks.
