Chipp, et al.,

You can use the Find/Replace on the Rev Menu bar to change parts of
scripts globally. And it's FAST. I just discovered last week. It's
WONDERFUL.

Don't know about properties. 

We DO need docs for the IDE. (Not that we'll read them!)

-)

(the sound you hear in the background is me changing ALL those scripts
and
properties!)

Guys,

It's even easier than you think... just set the traversalOn of the
button to false. It is the traversalOn that causes the button to get the
focus.

Have fun!
