Yes, the index would make things easier for online documentation as well. I mean, it takes some effort to find where "refinements" are mentioned...

Oh, bad news...

Take it as "I didn't fully read all the Core documents prior trying to do things with the View". I did read the View documents though. Speaking about view: has anyone written a bug-list of some sort for View, or even better, a list of work arounds to known issues? With my first attempt, I found several flaws. For example the choice face seems to decide the size of the button from first string, resulting in trash if following strings are lengthier? I also don't know how to produce a button that would close the window peacefully, I always get trash, if I press "ESC" and the next time I run the script, it doesn't work... These kind of show stoppers are a pity because otherwise View seems to be very nice concept... Cheers, Mikko Mäkelä
