What do all the options for printing multiple clues mean?

I just read a Wiki Help Update about printing clues. Help: Letterboxes, Number 18.

It mentions "Allow split clues?" and "Use columns for clues?". The only print options I see are: "Include Table of Contents?", "One Clue Per Page?", and "Show QR Codes to Record Finds?". I checked letterbox preferences to see if the other two were there but didn't see them. Where can you select these options? I usually use Box Radar but like to print clues when there are several boxes on one trail.

If you are at attending the event, be sure to check out the urgent update. We had to flip locations due to the 4th of July Celebration on the 5th.

Also, check out the clues to the permanent boxes we planted in Elkin. Temporary box clues will be available on site.

Can't wait for a wonderful weekend!

Apparently when I was hospitalized in 2010 I was part of a few LTC TRACKERS. I am coming across some gems, but I truly do not remember- I apologize completely for this.

I will contact anyone I find stuff for individually, but wanted to post publicly about this. No secrets. Trying to get back to whole living.

I will accept all negative thoughts and frustration as it is well earned.

I gave it some thought and came up with what I think is a non security threat method to plant inside airport security.

Use a small stamp with magnets embedded in the back (thin but strong magnets so you can ideally dig out the rubber to recess them) that are held in place with glue plus taped over and the entire stamp painted black. Then find a stationary metal object (water fountain seems the best option since they don't move but I am sure there are other possibilities once you look around) and hope it is metallic. No logbook, no container, no threat, no link back to AQ or letterboxing in general. Just a random piece of black trash stuck to something, if ever discovered.

I will be planting in the airport that originally inspired the idea later this month.

Update:

Yolanda's was LTC
But the portals belonged to goose hunters and prairie dog.

So when those get out of here I will jump into a couple more. Doing just a few things at a time. Might seem silly that I just don't jump and get it done. This occurred due to great loss and all those emotions come back. Along with guilt of not evening looking at this for years. Please hang in there. If I have something I will let you know. No secrets.

Unless you were the host of those swaps, I don't know why anyone would be upset! I've had people log LTC finds long after I sent them or not at all, and I'm not bothered by that.

I think I might have been the host, not exactly sure- I don't remember. But I do have an envelope of all the same LTC. Hopefully I will figure it out.

I have hundreds of LTC to record - that is last on my list. My binders was packed upside down so a lot of cards are loose now.

Allow split clues

When printing a clue, it may continue onto another page somewhere in that clue, splitting it between 2 pages.
It will not do this if you select 'one clue per page'.

"Use columns for clues". I'm confused about this one too. How do you indicate to print in more than one column?

Had you included such information in THIS clue, I would have happily done so. However, in this case it was a very unexpected noise since I didn't know it was velcro!!!

Just out of curiosity, I've noticed that there hasn't been an Eevil plot foiled in a while. If there are still unsolved capers when the countdown runs out, what happens? Will they remain a mystery forever?

I think there is a significant contingent that believes many of the clues needed to solve the remaining eevil boxes will be revealed at the Dark Star event.......most of us are holding our breath.

Do you think they would postpone it for the hurricane? I hope he is okay. Greens, yellows and reds are over the Wilmington area right now according to the radar.

He was able to get under shelter to work and he's still down there. He'll be home tonight and back again on Saturday. But hey! we get to spend time with the grand baby on Friday!!
Was hoping for a boxing weekend, but that's not to be either since we had to drop from the RW&Y event.
