  Steve Hill asked about removing dotted lines from flimsies in Aresti 4.  This
reply is on the open forum as other may like to take not.

First remember the Template for the flimsy is a 2-page document, with a
foreground page that you draw on and a background page which has the lines
etc on.  Also, the Template is protected such that the shapes on the
background page are locked.

Here are the steps to make changes to the background page after you have
opened the ORIGINAL version of the Template:

1.  Go to Tools, Protect Document... menu.  Un-check the "shapes" check-box
and click OK.

2.  Use the Edit, Go To... menu and select "background".

3.  Press Control-A to select all the shapes.

4.  Go to the Format, Protection... menu and select "None", then click OK.

5.  Click off the page to un-select all the shapes.

6.  Select the dotted grid lines individually and hit "Del" key for each.

You should now have the flimsy looking the way you want it.  It is optional
now whether or not you restore the protection.  If you don't want to restore
protection go straight to operation 10.

7.  Press Control-A to select all shapes.

8.  Go to Format, Protection... menu and select "All", then click OK.  You
will get a message returned - just click OK again.

9.  Go to Tools, Protect Document... menu and check the "Shapes" check-box,
click OK.

10.  Use the Edit, Go To... menu and select "Foreground".

11.  Save the modified Template.

That's it, steady how you go....
