This is what I'm talking about.

Now certainly this seems to conflict with mrmikel's thought and I am really pretty new and am pretty scared by cybomole's warning and I am not "asking for trouble."

But what's the deal? Is it okay to do the proofreading/editing the way mrmikel suggests? (Personally I can't see what the trouble might be. Like mrmikel said, 'the sony reader doesn't hold the file when it's in the list mode.'

THANKS!
