Another strong endorsement from me as well.  This is a great stack -- well
done, Eric!

I used a modified version of one of Eric's routines at RevConLive in Las
Vegas to copy objects between stacks.  I wound up building a routine that
works with older versions of Rev (back to 2.7 I believe), and creates a
dragged object representation that exactly matches the source object,
instead of being contained in rectangle.  One can also drag groups of
objects as well: images, controls, everything.  The following example stack
does this with professional flair and is easy to implement.
In your message box:

I need to create a thumbnail for this in the demos section of my site, but
for now, use the above to get the stack.  Totally free for use.  Tested on
OS X and Vista.

Once again, many thanks to Eric.
