Thanks for your time and advice.

By the way, you can align the audio quickly and easily if you use the Audio / Import Audio command, which causes you to see a dialogue box asking you where to start the audio. I don't have it in front of me now, but it's self-explanatory. Basically, in the first box on the left of the dialogue, enter "1" meaning the audio should start on the 1st measure of the song. (For me, this means changing this number from what is for me a default value of "-1", which means the start of the 2-bar count-in. )
