    Hi Pete, I truly appreciate all your generous time and hard work putting together these valuable videos. For the people who are getting AddLabel errors where it doesn’t let you push OK to save; all you have to do is place a # in front of the 2 lines that says AddLabel. The 2 lines in my script are lines 31 & 34. That’s it, then it’ll work.

        No worries at all Pete. Your videos are always spot on and user friendly. It also contain useful details. You make it so easy to follow instructions. When I replayed your video again just now, I didn’t see a # in front of line 34 which I could see, but you may have placed it later on. I haven’t seen an error in the bottom of your script either. Maybe the scrip knows it’s you the expert and didn’t want to give you an error haha. However, thanks to you, I learned to place a # in front of a command to inactivate it and it worked.

      Make sure you have not skipped any part of the video. If you are applying this code to a Study Filter of a scan there are certain modifications required. That’s why we don’t publish a list of free scripts. Each script requires the instructions in the video to make them work and understand what they do.
