Well, this is **almost** the answer, but on this particular XP machine, 
there now isn't quite enough space for the toolbar - about 5 pixels are 
missing from the top. I take this to be a (minor) bug in RR 1.1.1, and will 
live with it. I'll try testing on other Windows machines as and when I can 
get access.

Thanks Richard for your advice - I have really lost count of the number of 
times your interventions have helped me both with RunRev and with SuperCard.
