Many thanks Scott, Jacque and Richard, I have made the plugin and it works perfectly, so in the spirit of Christmas I have uploaded it to RevOnline for all to share.

I will submit an enhancement request over the holidays along with a couple of new bugs, 1 is RevOnline locks up in 6.5.1rc2 and the other is, mouseColor is broken when using pixelScale <> 1.

I guess RR will be very busy in the new year.

Thanks again,

My backscript contains development handlers that automate some common tasks I do often, which I call from the message box. I've been tinkering with it for years, it's a mess, but it's my mess and I love it.
