Thanks very much, Chris.

I never saw the Apply button.  The KDE panel at the bottom of the
screen was hiding it, and I couldn't resize the dialog window.

Moving my panel to the side allowed me to gain access to the Apply button.

Perhaps Apply should be a menu item for that dialog box?

Thanks again, Chris.
