Jacqueline,
I tried this, but to no avail:

Robert,
I did have something like this in mind as my workaround.  I managed to save the
selectedChunk, field and stacks into the other stack, and then use these to
reconstruct the selection and paste the user's chosen text into that place.

Finally, it works as I wanted it to :-))

I learned a lot about Rev in the process, so that was good too.  Thanks
everyone for your help.
