I'm running P11 and I can't seem to find it anywhere.


Hi Kevin,

I gave up on Corel’s versions of Paradox a long time ago, and decided to 
stick with Borland’s v7. This has earned me many comments, all 
essentially saying “you need to keep up with the times!”, but I had my 
reasons, and I don’t place much importance on ‘keeping up with the 
times’. I’ve had to stop upgrading Windows (I use version 8.1), so that 
I can continue using P7.

But I don’t know much about the later versions, so I can’t help you there.

There must be a facility *somewhere* in the menus. I hope someone can 
help you with this.

Regards,
Bob Eccles
