Thanks Jim. Is there anything affecting the speed of area field in VID? I know for Petr and I it is slow on our machines to type into when Area is large. You can actually watch the REBOL catch up to your typing speed. Last night I tried view on another machine (not sure of the speed). And on that machine the typing lag was not noticible, so I thought there might have been a flag in the new install user.r that made the difference. Maybe it is just a machine speed and Windows issue (typing in BeOS on the same machine seems fast enough) Cheers, Allen K
