Please see the REBOL/View Developer's Guide 

Both REBOL/Core and REBOL/View are available free of charge from www.rebol.com 

REBOL/View gui building is easy.

One point is that layout defaults to placing each element from top to bottom, or vertical direction. This functionality can easily be overridden with the layout keyword across, to place elements left to right, or horizontal direction. See the Developer's Guide for more information.

Nothing to break here.

5.1. Needs REBOL/View
