I get "can't set this property" when I:



set the short name of btn 1 to "XYZ"



The dictionary explicitly says you can set the short name. I assume this is a bug. (v. 6.5.2)

Hi friends,

just wanted to hear your opinions about a thing that bothers me for a long time.
No idea if one can change this or should change this however.

Anyway:
1. put the name of img "image" -> image "image"

2. put the short name of img "image" -> image

3. set the name of img "image" to "image2" -> OK

But:
4. set the short name of img 2 to "new image 2" 
-> Script compile error:
Error description: seek: missing 'in'

The big logical discrepancy between these four items is puzzling me for years 
:-)

Any ideas, opinions or whatever very welcome!


Best

Klaus
