    Yes there is and I could print one on my MFC, but it was way faster and more fun to doodle one. I still use it.

    A donation to a good local or school library will make you feel good, and others can enjoy/learn...

    Happy editing!!!

    Nobody wants them or any books. Try it sometime. Bookstores used to buy books by the pound, now they cannot buy any or stay in business.

    I recycle in the next town over as my village doesn't recycle anything. I wait until the pickup truck is 1/2 full... I fear they will stop as China no longer wants our cardboard or paper.

    I'm sure some people use Mac Book for reference.

    Fer sure!!! Currently in the process of editing over a 100 file size boxes of art/design/photo books, and even books that were worth $100's of $$$ can have trouble selling now... Downward trend now, but maybe later??? But nothing like a good book!!!

    Great stuff, though!!!

    You are welcome, and Dan Fromm recently purchased one. Purchased! We got one up on Dan! Yours was free!

    Enjoy, my brother.

    LOL Where is that bin????

    It's very hard to get one up on Dan.

    btw, I respect Dan Fromm, Jac Stafford and nearly everyone on this forum.

    My only regret is finding LF late in life...

    My chief technical reference material is the data sheets from the manufacturers of film, paper and chemistry.
