Thanks Chris,

I did at one time have the cube enabled, but I just checked it and it 
wasn't...So after checking it, it now works...

Thanks for the reminder...It's to bad, but you would think that they 
would have a list of key commands for eachone of the effects, maybe they 
do but haven't seen it...

Again thanks for the reply... ;-)
