Well variables returned from layout *are* pretty important :^) As for parent-face I don't know if that is really a problem, just a matter of usage, we know it it gets calculated after View been activated.

Ah that example helps considerably :^) Yes it does look like a problem.

Now doubt you'll see my later message - which I think fixes this problem.

Thanks for your patches, I'm going to add them to my patches.r script along with my change to layout. Regards, Brett.
