    Thank you for sharing this. I've looked for this solution many times in the past and just gave up on it because I've only ever seen 'Macro' solutions and I'm not going to that length. THIS is the solution. I would be nice if there was a simple "Undo" or CTRL+Z but this will suffice because I've needed this solution for way too long. Thanks again and well documented too!
