I have two questions for the field of experts:

1)  I have built an application from about 32 lines of code.  Nothing
fancy, just a menu with one option (quit), text resource from resEdit, and
a window with a scroll button.  FB currently has a preferred size of 4000K.
When the application has been built, it also has a preferred size of
4000K.  "About this macintosh..." indicates that only a small fraction of
that 4000K is actually being used, and it seem to me that the preferred
size of the application can be reduced.

How far can I go, is it going to be a trial and error, or can I predict how
much memory is necessary?

2) When using resEdit for creating text, I was able to put color in the
text by the cut/paste routine from a word processor.

Is there another way inside resEdit, or is that the only way possible?

Thanks in advance for your help.
