It's amazing how such a small problem can become such an issue when you are at the fitting and refitting stage of working on a book. Annoyance turns to frustration turns to anger. Here we sit, almost August 2019, and the problem still exists. Thanks for the work-around script (Rick Bates, below), but face it, a detour is still a detour, even if it gets you to the same place.
