Couple suggestions/questions: Can I search within my own list? It would be nice to have an alphabet list to quickly go to the page where a plant should be. When I add a plant to my list from the main database, can I get to the point of adding comments, etc. somehow or do I need to add the plant, then go to my list and customize further from there? Oh yeah, and can I expand the page numbers so I can quickly go to page 15 (for example) rather than manuevering around the ... notation? I am very much enjoying having my plants all easily at hand, no complaints, just wondering if I am missing features. Thanks. Deb

One thing you CAN do (which I just realized from looking for an answer to one of your questions) is go to the public view of your list and it gives you the option of viewing only a particular genus. I like that! Although, it would be nice to be able to do that same thing in the "manage your own list" area. Hint, hint, Dave! Smiling

Thanks, Woofie. I'm trying to also use the List feature so my sister and I can easily let each other know what plants we want to exchange. My thought is for me to create a category called "From Laur" in my own plant list, then go to her plant list and add plants she has as "want" in my list and categorize them "From Laur" and she can then access my list and search using those two parameters. That way, she knows what to set aside for me. And vice versa. Once we've exchanged, all I have to do is recategorize to "Have".

BTW, Laur is in the Twisp area, where are you at? My husband and I also have property near Wauconda.

We're up in the far north east corner, about 40 miles north of Spokane.
That sounds like a pretty good plan with your sister. I did something similar with my list to keep track of some trades that were far enough in the future that I was afraid I'd forget!
