Most Talked About Thread

**This is characterized by the number of responses in a thread

Omar Luna asked for some help with "Computing view layout" issue. He has a workbook with 2,300 map images and it was causing an issue when he would open it up. Jeff Strauss came up with a couple of suggestions that would point to the images on a server, but Omar didn't have access to the web for his presentation. Tom W took a stab of playing with the workbook and presented Omar with a couple of options that hopefully improved the experience. Omar, let us know if it helped by marking one their answers correct! Or let us know if you found another solution - hope the presentation went well!
