Hello Henrik... Thanks for the response!! Here's a bit more info: Using OS X 10.5.6 I have `rebview' parked in my Dock I click on the "exec" (rebview) icon and I get: 1. A "terminal" window with a single tab containing: [09:38:15][dnormandin-tigger:~]$ /Users/dnormandin/downloads/rebol-276\ 2/rebview ; exit; 2. The "REBOL -ViewTop" window with: "Welcome to REBOL/View 2.7.6 When I click on the "Console" icon, the "tab" in #1 above reads: REBOL/View 15-Mar-2008 Copyright 2000-2008 REBOL Technologies.

I should say that I DLed the OSX PPC version, only because the OSX Intel link at is pooched. Are you running the Intel flavor? So far, everything seems normal, until I go back to the desktop and then click the "Console" icon again to re-enter the REBOL console. I am returned to the same OSX terminal window; same "terminal" tab, but a new instance of the interpreter. WTF.....? I might as well be using BrainF..k for the headache I'm getting.... ;)) Thanks! -- Duke Normandin A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
