thank you for your patient response. one of
RunRev's strengths is the willingness of advanced
programmers to respond to the less advanced. we
do appreciate it.

are there any problems with bringing in an image
as an icon or saving an icon as an image? HC has
a  useful 2-tone editor, MC i don't know about
for editting icons and/or images.  all of my
HC>MC icons have somehow become images in a
RunRev group.
maybe there is a workaround here.
