The correct answer I think will be body NOT independent, and head independent. But stray tags can mess things up.

I will absolutely try that. Thank you so much for responding. Looking at the old posts, most were from like 2017. I didn't think anyone would answer.

These forums are not as popular as Illustrator, Photoshop etc, but there are about 3 requests a day on average from the stats I have seen, and over half get answered. So not super active, but certainly a lot of traffic after 2017!!  Glad you got it working!!
