Tom,

I might suggest to you and others who are just getting acquainted with  
GLX2's features, to turn on the preference in GLX2's prefs for  
Instructional Tooltips. You'll find it in the Global Prefs section of  
the Prefs Palette. (Prefs Palette accessible via the Preferences menu  
item on the menubar when GLX2 is in front).

If this pref is on, when you put your pointer (mouse) over a GLX2 Tab,  
you'll see in the status bar (riding beneath the Rev Palette at top) a  
prominent tip telling you the presence of a right-clickable contextual  
menu for the tab.

Best,

Jerry Daniels
