Hi Shawn!! Regarding exporting well, you chose the right options. I to have scene those combo boxes that Jaws can't read however, I wouldn't personally worry about them to much. Are you using Sonar 4 Producer? If you are then, Sonar will export the mix at 16 bit by default. Note: don't forget to turn on the dither. The dither will convert from 24 to 16 bit for you. I think it is probably turned on by default. You will find the various dithering options in the "audio Options" dialog box. Then, after the export, you will only need to convert the sample rate of the exported file from 48, to 44.1. Regards, Phil Muir, one of the CT beta testers.
