Jack,

There's nothing in the online help currently about the margin bell.  It
should be there by the time we ship.

You set the margin bell position using Global, View Preferences.  The margin
bell position is the edit field that has the keyboard focus when you first
bring up that dialog.

How do you find the bell. I have a pretty severe hearing loss and I am
wondering if I can hear it. I checked throu all the menus.  In search margin
bell brought me nothing, and bell brought up George, who in all probability
couldn't be persuaded to change his position anyway.
Thanks in advance

Jack
