Card SnapShot from Negative Rect?

Hi Scott,

what happens if you reference the object directly:

on mouseUp
   export snapshot from field 1 of group 1 to tImg as png
   set the text of image 1 to tImg
   put the rect of field 1 of group 1
end mouseUp


on mouseUp
   import snapshot from field 1 of group 1 
   put the rect of field 1 of group 1
end mouseUp

the rect of field 1 being 327,-125,577,-69

both work for me in LC 7.1.4. Both retain transparency.

Kind regards
