I'm using on Windows 98. When I click on view, the console pops up and shows: ** Script Error: insert expected count argument of type: number. ** Where: face/text: head insert/dup reform [ either object? :this-val [ either spot/4 ["--"] ["+-"] ] [#] spot/3 ]
I thought it happened on another target, but now I can't find it.

I didn't realize that the cursor caret scrolled the area face. Thanks! All in all, I feel pretty silly for TOTALLY forgetting that one of the purposes was to edit values on the fly (like, golly Mr Wizard, you mean that this car *drives* too?). Won't be the first or last time I make an idiot of myself. =\

Speaking of which, I cannot seem to get a handle on the distinctions amongst the evolving RT products. It's like I read the text and think, "yeah, that makes sense." But after a moment, I'm thinking, "yeah, but *what* is it?" I mean no offense to the work that someone put in on the web pages, but just as a form of feedback, I don't feel like I'm really "getting it." Of course ... this is the same person who didn't know that the area face scrolls and that overly exuberantly added features only to kill half the usefulness of a program!!! Thanks for your interest and the great script. --Scott
