I should have explained earlier. Sorry.

CTX-TEXT is an object that contains some functions and objects that VID
One of these is Swipe which a "Feel" object. Feel objects make things happen
on the screen. Most of the VID styles you use automatically have a Feel
The Swipe feel object allows the you to highlight the text and copy it
with ctrl-c. For example, here are two boxes I give the second one the Swipe
lyo: layout [
box tan "This is some text. Can you copy me?"
b: box orange "You can copy me with the mouse."
I used Swipe in my earlier example to you because that is what the INFO
style uses for its Feel object. So my example
was swapping the feel object dynamically. I did this because I think it was
closest to your original question, but admittedly
without good documenation it is not simple to understand.

If you rethink your application you may not need use the techniques I've
shown. For example,
you may be able to recreate the whole window when a checkbox is enabled or a
button is pushed.
What I mean is - have one window for editing and another for just displaying
Have a look at the Panel How-to on http://www.rebol.com
If you want to learn investigate more of the lower level stuff then for
other documentation you might be able to get some information from the Beta
