Thanks Peter for the suggestion.  But in my case, I'm using the Cloud version.  Do you know of a similar solution that works with Cloud?

There's only a "is this helpful" button, so I marked it as "inaccurate." Hopefully that gets looked at! smile

Ah, thanks for pointing out that this a community forum.
