<DIV>This works well except that ...</DIV>
<DIV>I am using a specialized 'callout' label symbol that we have changed t=
he default color on, etc. I'm finding that when I 'select a style', it wont=
 allow me to pick from the symbol I have created and saved ... only from so=
me pre-chosen set of label styles.&nbsp; I can pick one of the pre-set labe=
l styles (there is a rounded call out there),but I have to go in and change=
 the colors, fonts, etc. every time. Woe on me should I change 'tools' for =
some reason ... have to go thru the whole process again. Know of any way to=
 'save' my 'special' balloon symbol I've created, out to the automatic defa=
ult "Label Styles" selection I get when I attempt to 'choose a style'?? <BR=
