Ah - finally! Never noticed text-pane before. (Which is most strange...) What I was wanting to do was to have different colored lines of text. Can now... view layout [ t: text-list "aaa" "bbb" "ccc" button "Change" [ repeat line 3 [ face: t/text-pane t/iter line insert face/text join line " " face/font/color: pick reduce [red green blue] line show face ] ] ] Many thanks. -- Carl Read
