We all wish for better documentation for View. However, you didn't say which docs you were aware of. Simple docs regarding VID and Draw are available via the View Desktop in the rebsite, plus there's an old but quite good (if incomplete) View doc archived on the RebolForces site at... Those are RT documents. Others here could tell you of third-party docs too, I'm sure. -- Carl Read
