Border screen "artifacts" on dynamically moving button on Windows

Richard... Smart properties that's a Rinaldi plug-in for Revolution
available on contributions page at runrev.com -- very handy. and I
really don't see how I would have solved this without it and without a
reminder about the armBorder property.
Any way happy to say that setting "armBorder" to false for the button
fixed the problem on windows with the left mouse-click... a very
"esoteric" problem, in so far as
a) this wasn't happening on the Mac and doesn't happen with a right
mouse click on windows
b) armBorder does not appear in the properties inspector of the Rev IDE
but now, the button has not a single appearance attribute set to true
except icon id from an image, which is what is wanted.
Because of the latter I wasted quite a bit of time. Since buttons are
touted as the way to create multiple instances from a single image
source, one would think it should be easer. Had we seen "armBorder" in
the property inspector we certainly would have turned it off. Can
anyone enlighten us as to the rationale behind RunRev's decision to
"mask off" from the development the option to deal with certain
properties via the property inspector? I think the armborder *was* an
available property in the Metacard property inspector.
We mentioned this before in relation to "Button" and "Menu" where,
sometimes one want a button to look and feel like a button, and yet
behave like a pull down menu. This was easily achieved in MC as the
property inspector showed all such properties that could be set... But
now, with Rev it's a bit of a headache. If you chose a "menu" from the
tools you get a property inspector that is "crippled" with respect to
what you can do the object, which is a "button" in the docs, with a
property list that is only partially accessible except from the msg
Anyway this case is closed... but I wonder if we shouldn't feature
that the properties inspector reveal all properties to the user...
