thank you for the kind words.

Unfortunately RunRev changed the way to calculate the offset of the vertical
dividers from the left of the field. You filed a bug #10223, Rev may change
this or may not.
I tried to update the stack on RevOnline but RevOnline did not like me ...
:)

If anyone wants to make this work for versions < 5.5 and >= 5.5 add this to
the script
------------------
  -- fix for the changed tab location in LiveCode 5.5
   put the version into tVersion
   replace "." with "" in tVersion
   if char 1 to 2 of tVersion >= 55 then
      add (item 1 of the margins of me -3) to tLeft
   end if
   -- end fix for changed tab location
------------------
Kind regards
Bernd
