The Stack Inspector states that the default maximum width of a stack
is 65535. However, on my Mac I can't set the width of a stack to
greater than 32767 pixels (half of 65534.) Similarly, on page 49 of
the User's guide, the "Maximum size of an object" is given as
"Unlimited". But I can't set the width of an object to greater than
What is bizarre is that I can make a control 65534 pixels wide by
making the rect of the control (for example) -32767, 10, 32767,100.
However, if I try to make the rect of the stack "-32767, 10,
32767,100" Revolution crashes or resizes to a seemingly random rect.
Are these stated limits actually incorrect or am I misunderstanding
something? Does it work correctly in Windows (maybe this is a Mac
problem)? Does anyone know a workaround to that 32767 limit? And out
of curiosity, what is the significance of that number? Will it soon/
I am designing a stack that consists of a single normal-sized card
that contains a normal-sized group whose lockloc is set to true. The
group contains many images placed side-by-side next to one another.
One can scroll to any picture almost instantly by using the group's
HScrollbar. This stack is great but sometimes there are so many
images in the group that the formattedwidth of the group is greater
than 32768 -- or would be, but I can't get to that point while
setting up the stack. All kinds of strange things happen.
Incidentally 65535 would be wide enough to accommodate my needs, so
if Revolution simply worked as stated, it would be fine. Any ideas/
