A few further experiments. I was able to get the error message 'scroll
"Can't open zigzag.data/zigag.dat : not a directory" I tried making a
directory named zigzag.data and copied all the files into but that produced
the same message.
When I tried to save again I got an auto-renaming thing. I changed the name
and it seemed to work, but there doesn't seem to be any way to select a
different filename on startup, making it a somewhat useless thing to do.

Oh, drat. I must have made a typo!

Yes, that should allow it to load.

Hmmm. Looks like I'll have to do some more testing. :-)
Sorry and thanks for your feedback!

Sure! Assistance is always welcome.
