I don't think so. It looks like you're saying "dragWindow" in SC gets
executed after you drag, but that cannot be true. Specifying a location for
the palette window relative to the main window causes the palette to stay
docked in the main window wherever you drag it. I'd be happy to send you an
example I have running in SC4 if you like.

Then "moveStack" in Rev cannot be the same as "dragWindow" in SC.

Which is the same as "dragWindow" in SC, I think.
Whatever the case, I can see a need to use the feature cross-platform, so I
need to experiment. I'll let you know my findings.
But for now, I only need it to run in Windows. My Windows machine is
basically monitorless at the moment. The Switchbox causes a ghost problem on
the Mac. I tried changing settings but no joy. I had to use a direct
connection which takes great effort for me to deal with.
For the moment, I'm trying to avoid building windowShape emulations or fake
window graphics (possible but too much work).
