Aha. Yes I see it. For scripts, the VIEW function automatically puts the text of the script title into the main face if there is no text already defined for the main face. This occurs at "view b" and "view c" - but you don't see the change. I cannot explain why. You see the change once "view lay" is executed. When you paste at the console there is no script title defined therefore there is no change. Compare your example with the following - which will not change the text I have given to the box.: REBOL [Title: "No Problem!"] lay: layout [ across b: box "box 1" red c: box "box 2" green] view b view c view lay If you want to see where the change occurs type the following at the console: source view Brett.
