Hi, Graham, It is looking really good! When Bob Racko mentioned the Wiki on rebol.org for documentation, I realized that it was what was need for a FAQ. Thanks. As a test I updated the text-list to include an alternative slider update. I submitted the change, which left me at the same edit screen, so I click Home to get out. When I went back, the additions had been stored, so no problem there. I thought I would let you know about this little usability problem. Volker Nitsch submitted an example of a scrolling area back in February. Here is an excerpt of the relavent section. I've never actually used this code, so I don't don't know about other consequences. ; <snip> s: ta: sv: none ;---some data s: for i 1 130 1 [ insert "" rejoin [i newline]] view layout [ across ta: area 140x480 s sv: slider 16x480 [ scroll-para ta sv] ] ;<snip> Updateable FAQ; great idea. Thanks again.
