I see. So there are three different states of this check box: empty,
checked and "squared". That's a new thing for me. I always thought
there were just two states of both check boxes and radio buttons, but I
think I can handle that. Thanks for laying it out.
On another note, I've discovered that while the desktop icon I assign to
a folder is there when I first create the folder and set it all up, it
shrinks the instant I write or copy a file into the folder, either
through Livecode or manually on the desktop. Do you know why this might
I only see the icon I assign when viewing by medium and large icons.
Could this have something to do with it?
