Alex and Mark,

I forgot about the html. I will spend today exporting to html and then 
play with that and see if it will speed things up or not.

Also, I already figured the special effects would be rebuilt in REV 
from scratch. But, I was wondering if any one built some functions to 
handle the built in abilities in REV for animation type effects???? If 
I do this I will write my own for this and future projects and upload 
but it would be nice to have a Build slide via first bullet/every line/ 
every word etc. function.
it would be nice to have a few affects to animate a text field with 
that are straight forward and simple.

Thanks again

tom
