performance improvement uisng string.format()

Re: query for miketate map life facts

Not a bit. it is how I know that a new facts address (to my program) is under discussion, because Track = is not there. Regardless of the method you make your insertions into the text, SO FAR it appears I can address them using fhGetLabelledText, so, I will check for Plot Mode = if it does not exist...

Re: Map Life Facts

More information, first, it appears that a close of the fh and reopen of the program is involved. that is, if I run MLF and stay in FH and add a few addresses, and rerun MLF in the same session it appears to work correctly.
