    I was interested in this process and followed the link for the lesson in the shop as directed. It leads me to a page of digital mapping for – i guess – what should be the right location. Can you direct me, please. Thanks, so much

      We occasionally get a BIG run on Breakaway Anchors, a video tutorial released in 2014 as part of Premier.

      BAD NEWS
      Because this video tutorial is nine years old, I don’t feel right selling it in its current state.

      I’ll plan to revive Breakaway Anchors in the next couple of weeks and then make it available for sale.
      Watch for it in Community or in our newsletter.
