Hi Larry

I totally agree with your descriptions of the dictionary and supporting
media. That is why I developed the LC Dictionary Pro app using FileMaker
Advanced. I only received a minimum of support for this app when I tried to
get support for a cloud version of the app. So I put it on the shelf for
another day.

Thank you

Vaughn Clement
