Scrolling stack windows?

Dear Mark,

Thanks for that. I think I would have to ungroup the existing top level
group then select whatever number of clones groups the user is displaying
and regroup them. Or is there a way of cloning into a group the way I can
copy into a card?

Thanks and regards

Hi John,

Group all objects and set the rect of this new group to the rect of  
the card (you may need to make adjustemnts if you have a menubar). Set  
the hScrollba, vScrollbar and the lockLoc of the group to true. Now  
you have something that's very close to a scrolling window.

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
