Jo,

No probs. I view in digest mode - I seem to miss most of the threads,
because they start and finish before I even see them :-)

Have you a 68K machine doing MacOS 8 - didn't think they could do that
I thought 7.6.1 was the last 68K operating system.

"Soon" is all relative.

Can you produce a cut down version which just handles menus which
exhibits the behaviour. Then I'm sure they'll be lots of help from
the 'list.

>It has to be in a conflict with the FBII runtime and the MacOS.
I've seen it in other Apps too. I don't think its FB specific.
I'm sure its a programming paradigm - hey, I like that :-)
that causes the conflict: like doing an INVALRECT after a particular
event which now throws up problems with the latest OSs.

>You can't use 8.1 on a G3 - can you?
A b&w G3, no.
