Initially this was what I did, but I kept getting an error that
scroll-para was undefined. That was when I started paying much closer
attention to how Jeff programmed multiple pop-ups to where each dialog
could have a distinct action. So I reviewed his style very closely, and
experimented and discovered that my solution allowed the scroll-para to
be defined and to control its own area. That was when I gained a real
appreciation for Jeff's clever programming. This approach works on my
set-up (Win98 and /View 0.10.38.3.1). I successfully had multiple
dialogs open, changed values (I even got the /View version up to its
release version of 1.0 !!! Why didn't RT think of that. ;-)
successfully. I just can't click on the view object.
Again though thank you for the timely input. I feel as though I have a
much better understanding of managing scrolling now for my own projects.

Yes, sorry, I inadvertantly sent it through Outlook Express without
changing the paragraph wrap length. I would be happy to resend it if
someone needs the fix without the bother of manually fixing the indents.
