I have a "Dummy" rsrc file .. That I use to start a Program .. with all 
the basic resources that I use, Preinstalled .. One is a SIZE Resource .. 

Every time I open a ResEdit rsrc file .. I've developed the habit of 
automatically Click & and Copy the SIZE .. The Size is small and Copies 
fast .. AND .. sets a "Standard Routine" that prevents forgetting the 
safe guard ..

ALSO .. IF you have more than one ResEdit rsrc file open at one time .. 
You have to do the Click & Copy routine ON ALL of them .. 

Another "Bug" you may encounter .. IF .. IF you have FB & and a ResEdit 
rsrc File open at the same time .. Where the two overlap .. You may loose 
the cursor in that region of your Screen .. The cursor is there and 
Functional .. BUT it is invisible
