Hit the Ground running!

I think that was my problem - I have 2 folders full of bookmarks that I’ve accumulated over the past 3 years. Finding anything in that mess was difficult.

The settings link is critical, the others are purely knowledge but a curated list like this is invaluable. Having 20+ links might be a bit much - maybe break it up into sections. But I always find gems in things like this, even if I’ve read them or used them in the past.

I have PTSD from the one and only time I used the PT feature, Nightmare I do not want to revisit.

Research YouTube and read posts here regarding the PT.

Let’s just say that we are not satisfied with our first adhesive product so I will not mention it…. We are still exploring options as to what is best….
