Wilhelm,

Did you also comment the line:

if the platform is "MacOS" then set the top of this stack to 
round(item 4 of the screenRect/5)

It appears at the very end of the preopenstack script in answer dialog.

The following  works (sort of) for me:

on mouseUP
   lock screen
   go to stack "answer dialog"
   set the loc of stack "answer dialog" to 100,200
   answer "Now where am I?"
   unlock screen
end mouseUP

But there is a problem: The dialog stack flashes on the screen 
(despite the lock screen) and then the dialog box opens. Can't find a 
way to prevent this.

Sarah,

I had trouble with  the FTP reference too. Every  time I double 
clicked the reference, my  Mac locked up. Try just copying the 
reference

ftp://ftp.hrz.uni-kassel.de/pub/uni-kassel/Zentraler.Medienbereich/Sanke/Metacard/MetacardPractice/

and pasting it into the address line of your browser. That worked for me.

Jim
