Hi there Klaatu

Thank you for replying.

Yes I agree with you.

My request was driven out of an annoying thing I couldnt find a
solution for.

The 'render with args' check and edit boxes do not show up on 'small
screens' and it seems there is no config item to get FB to switch off
'small screen checking' and so [hopefully] display the render args
sections. There's a few posts, but it came down to updating being a
better solution with the other things changed since the 1.6.

The later builds have allegedly fixed the issue.

Any way, I realise there is a fair bit of work, checking and
testing, so thank you for considering and I will be pleased when you
get some time to have a look.

Keep well
