Yes, I'm in a bit of a panic now as I have accepted a contract on the
assumption that it can be done. It MUST be able to be done by the way
because anything that Rev or MC do we can but the how is not always clear. I
really think there needs to be more docs on building truly cross platform
apps. I just found out yesterday that the option button on OS X will use any
menu metachars that are in the button when the Windows one does not. The
only way for me to get around the problem was to change to a list field for
that interface. Don't get me started on the different sizes of tabs on
tabbed buttons!


I'm sure someone has some info on this it's just a matter on keeping our
discussion going on long enough for Kevin or Scott or some other guru to
notice it ;-)
