thanks for the suggestion, it still did not work, although your suggestion regarding the combined files is still worth investigating. I will instead remove this from the python code.
By the way, can you educate me on the correct manner on reusing someone's code. For example I need to edit the PDF python that Konrad did and managed to make it work for my purpose and say I post it in the forum for others to use so we can help the forum. Do I need to ask Konrad for permission before posting or what is the correct protocol? Or for example if I expand the UI++ capability do I need to ask your permission?
