Why don't you report the objects hilite state to a preference stack  
you can save and retrieve by a simple start using stack  
"prefrences.rev" each time your standalone starts up ? I use this way  
all the time at start time of my Win32 and OSX standalones, to save  
texts and buttons preferences change states with all the security and  
confort expected.

No sure, Edimburg would have to set up this kind of features for us,  
at least ifor me ;-)

Hope this help,

Kind Regards,
