I would very much like to know what kind of error dialog you get and which
operations could not be cancelled.

One of the already known issues is the unfriendliness of the Rev IDE towards
customized answer and ask dialogs. 
On the one hand among the (once) praised features of Metacard and Revolution was
the possibility to adapt even elements of the IDE to your specific needs; since
long I prefer to embed my own dialogs into my stacks, because I need the option
to place them anywhere on the stack or the screen and I do not like the far
oversized widths of the dialogs Rev offers.
On the other hand the Rev IDE is  "over-protective" in some respects (and for
reasons that escape me) and does not like such customized dialogs.
Take a look at the script of btn "revfrontscript" of stack "revlibrary" which is
inserted as a frontscript for the Rev IDE and comment out lines 992 to 1006 in
handler "revCheckStackCollision". This will stop the complaint about the answer
dialog and otherwise will have no effects on how the Rev IDE will function.

Alternatively it would be a good choice to get the Metacard IDE and just place
the latest Rev engine into it. Most - if not all - of your problems will then

Another annoyance is the fact that with version 3 of the Rev IDE the blue stack
"Rev Centre" keeps popping up all the time after a customized answer or ask
dialog has finished the execution of its script. I have not yet found out from
where this annoyance originates. Same recommendation as above: Get the Metacard

And: I hope the mail service of our server will now work properly. I saw that
even my post about "Twofold posting of mail" was sent twice.

Best regards,
