It is. View 1.0 was accidentally released with some compiler optimizations disabled.

Set system/view/screen-face/options to a block as follows: To open on a custom screen and prompt you for a screenmode (AmigaOS 2.1 or higher): [exclusive-colors] To open on a custom screen of a certain mode and depth: [exclusive-colors screen-mode "NTSC:HighRes" screen-depth 4] To open on an existing, open, named public screen, created previously by your favorite public screen manager (e.g. PSI): [exclusive-colors screen-name "screenname"] Opening on a public screen is recommended with View, because that way multiple instances of View (main desktop and launched scripts e.g.) can share the same screen.

It can. Have you tried ? Just enter the arguments as tool types with one tool type per argument, e.g. +q -s -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
