Hi

I’ve been using The Best Spinner for a while and find it to be a really useful product, however, I have found a few problems with My Favourites which I have put through the Support system.

In most cases I was pointed to tokens as a solution, however, I feel that a Tokens Category set would help solve most of the issues I have been facing. i.e. the ability to store and manage a set of Favourite Tokens in a similar way to My Favourites.

 Tokens are used in Data Merge. This forum is for TBS2, which can still be used but most people now use TBS3. There is a video on Data Merge at http://prosperative.com/public-forum/tbs3-video-tutorials/going-deeper-advanced-spinning-with-data-merge/ (http://prosperative.com/public-forum/tbs3-video-tutorials/going-deeper-advanced-spinning-with-data-merge/) and you can get a downloadable PDF booklet (6 pages) at http://www.howtospinbest.com/datamergebooklet.pdf (http://www.howtospinbest.com/datamergebooklet.pdf)
