I tried switching to a larger monitor, where the automatic extension was
not needed. There was no problem until i reached the time where i needed
an extension. My entry form is now complete but i hope that this issue
will be addressed in future releases.
The program is FANTASTIC and so easy to use. I have and will continue to
promote it to my colleagues.
