In this particular case, it worked, but if I try to omit the para word for the text-face, the title will scroll together with the text again.. This 'feature' is reconstructable in a lot of example programs in the 'library' from RT, take for example text-view.r by Carl.. Change the subtitle to be accessible by for example the "st1" word like: view layout [ st1: subtitle "Text File Viewer..." ... and add show st1 in the slider's action block, and you'll get a scrolling title (that is more easy to detect than not including 'show st1' in the slider's action). It isn't the 'show.. line that scrolls the title, it will just be updated a bit easier (it may be updated by randomly clicking on it or any other object, therefor the randomly jumping text effect). /PeO
