I have posted this
thread in the Software forum, but I suspect that my problems may be more because I am a *complete* newbie than because of a fundamental software problem.
If any kind soul would like to take a stroll over to the software forum and try to help me out I would be very grateful.
I apologise if this is considered to be cross-posting but whilst its proper home is undoubtedly the software forum I think that at its heart is the issue of the fact that I haven't the faintest idea what I am doing. The thread can be found here.
