Bar none, this is my second favorite program on this site besides PopUp Wisdom.

Sorry i haven't replied sooner.
The issue with updating TFLM is simply one of trying to think of minor updates the program might need before i have to work on a major completely new version.  If you have suggestions let me know.

No problem mouser. I myself didn't notice your reply until I checked the replies to my post section because I was focused elsewhere.

(Haven't read the rest of the forum so these might have been suggested before.)

Some minor suggestions:
-drag and drop to sort the files.
-hotkey for edit configuration
-quick transform from radio button to checkbox and vice versa
-auto-minimize after lost focus
-font size sliders

Some major suggestions:
-Option to change to tag based (with autocomplete tagging) format
-RTF formatting
-Better documentation for newbies who don't understand keys, values and variables
-Ability to cut off sections that have been pasted and index them as another section. Even better if there was some way to transform part of the text that was in a description box into a section
-Checked Items Sessions
-Dual location for files (one for default folder, other for backup)
-Right click -> add entry
-Search box
-Multi-check Checkboxes
-Optional blank reference section (basically just a blank note linked to an entry to refer to urls or other programs)
-Section highlighting to differentiate between different but similar contents
-Option to have grid lines signifying each segmented section
-Option to have a percent meter slider near the bottom to clue the user on the progress of the current topic. (Doesn't need to autodetect, just an option to quickly view the amount of contents inside a folder/section)
-Option to show Word Count
-Option to show hide all these features

Encountered a new problem:

It seems you can't regroup a folder under another folder after you have severed their relationship.

Greetings.

I have a suggestion to incorporate great power (yes I know, and great resposibility) into this fine machine.
We have at our use the option of check boxes and radio buttons.  The great leap forward would be to add on a drop box, scrollable/auto fill  to list and find addressees.  If this is possible, then a second to list find and fill could be added to incorporate products, patients talked about, or w.h.y. into the letter.
I would give big bucks for this.  Or better yet, it would sell like tickle me elmo.

thanks,         steve
