Default Tricks and Tips

By popular request, we have set up this section for you recommend the best tips and fixes that you read in these forums or that you post yourself.
Please pmail cutter or madam X with the links to the threads where they are located and we will add them to a list here so you can find them more easily in the future.

If this grows over the long haul, we can perhaps convert it to a separate forum in the future. That depends on how much participation it gets.
