I have an editable field with this handler:

on keyDown var
   send "keydown" && var to this stack
   put var
end keyDown

In HC, any text I type gets placed into the field, so typing works

Actually, in HC, I say "to Hypercard", but it makes no difference.

But in Rev I get an error message stating that Rev "can't find handler near 

Can't wait to see where this divergence between the two lies...
