That is an excellent suggestion. I have only used column view for clock
times and efforts, not imagining that it could be used for something as
simple as revealing the PROPERTY drawers. Of course, I'll either have to
rationalise my PROPERTIES (at present, no two headings have the exactly
the same drawers) or stack headings with same PROPERTIES. That will be a
good exercise.

Thank you again. I would never have thought of something so simple and

Best wishes,
