Windows questions

Thanks Ken for the quick reply, but the nature of the problem has  
changed somewhat after some experimentation.

In my stack, increasing the field height didn't help, there is  
nothing overlapping  and the visual effects using lock and unlock  
screen didn't help either, so I fooled around a bit and found  
something else that seems to be responsible.  My stack has a  
windowShape (basically a rectangle with rounded corners used to avoid  
the standard controls), and when I lose that windowShape, your  
suggestions either worked perfectly (visual effect) or were no longer  
necessary (field insertion point.) And if I set the stack to no shape  
and set the decorations to empty, the fields and effects still work!

So the new question is can a stack with a windowShape work properly  
in Windows?  No mention in the docs about fields and visual effects  
not working in stacks with windowShape.  I haven't tested it yet, but  
my guess the shape also has to do with "move" not working well.  Any  
ideas or experience with this?

Cheers,


Lars
