Me too. In this Particular instance I had made some changes and thought I’d better make it a quarantined version away from the main version. I wish now I’d just do what I normally do and copy paste the code into notepad then make a copy and open that. It’s only because I got stuck in the loop I asked the question. And then got miffed because it’s another one of these things that is known about, fundamental, and still not resolved after 18yrs. 18yrs of pain versus a few weeks or months of work for LC.
