Geometry Manager

Yes, I read the description in the User Guide.  Here's what I did.  I  
selected a control that is over on the right of the card and set it to  
Scale, then clicked the grey bar in the link area to create an  
absolute link to the right edge of the window.  Then I resized the  
width of the window.  The control wasn't scaled and it didn't move  
relative to the right edge of the window, it was just cut off by the  
new right edge of the window.  So I guess I'm not sure what else I  
need to do.
