I'm wrapped up in something else right now but I'll try to remember to
test when I'm done. My original thought was to avoid use of "the rect"
entirely and use relative positions instead, like "the right" or "the
bottom", on the assumption the engine would know what to do. The rect is
pixel-specific, where relative positions aren't (I think.) For example:
set the bottom of grp "bottomToolBar" to the bottom of this cd
Worth a try anyway. If I remember right, I used "the right of this cd"
in Gurudeva and it worked on any screen. We didn't have to deal with
tops and bottoms though, it was the width that varied.
