In this release:
Redid Facts. This included:
- Adding frmFacts
- Redoing the look of the command buttons and removing cmdDeleteFacts in frmReminder
- Removing all reference to factmode in frmReminder frmReminder

Note that I redid the buttons on frmFacts and they are not like they are in the above picture. If you like the way they work then we could do the same for contacts, but I'd like that in a new question.

Also as I said I changed the look of the command buttons on frmReminder. Please let me know if you have any problems with that. If so I can change them. I'll need to do some changes to some pictures in the Help topics because of that so I'll wait to hear from you before I do that.

As for help for frmFacts, could that be a new question please?

Ok I added code for the font sizes and names (that I forgot about) and I added a View column.

If you want me to change the buttons on frmContacts to look like the ones on frmFacts I need a new question

I also need a new question for a Facts topic help file. When I create that topic I'll also update the existing topics so that they reflect frmReminder's new look.
