The scaling works great!

There is NO other script in this stack.  I checked the stack script and the 
cd script - entirely empty (this was a brand new practice stack).  "Hide 
image <Holder>" does not hide the image;  issuing this command from the 
message box does not cause it to disappear either.  I then tried the menu 
"Show invisible Objects" under view to make sure nothing was going on - REV 
crashed.  So I tried it again, x2, and it crashes every time on my machine.  
This stack was a brand new REV stack, not imported from HC.  So I created 
another new stack, no object scripts except the button that contains only the 
script we are discussing, and the image does not hide.

Can I do something different to accomplish this tasK?
