Unfortunately because lists doesn’t format, though there are links to New Year menus, you will need to cut and paste them into your browser. There is another ‘charming ‘ glich. Sometimes refresh needs to be used to see all list items. Check numbers to see if they are all there …1,2,3,4,etc … not 1, 5,6, 10.
Hope people who go out will post abut it.
