Hi, Colin, Outside of the documentation available so far, the only real way to know all particulars is to read the source for /View and VID. In case you are unfamiliar with how to do this, one method is: write %view-vid.txt mold system/view Then read the text file with your favorite text editor. After awhile, its starts to really make sense, and where it doesn't, trial and error will frequently help. Good luck. --Scott Jones

Hi Colin As mentioned by GS Jones, there is currently no documentation which comprehensively covers all of the attribute words used in the VID and View style objects. You can access the base objects this way: st: get-style 'text Then you can get a block containing the attribute words with print mold first st You can look at all of the definitions with print mold st or probe st HTH -Larry
