How to handle 'movestack' ??

Thanks for the tips and the mc stack. Very cool! Couple of questions.

1) Why "set the lockLocation of img 1 to true" is this necessary?
2) Why "set decorations of this stack to empty" couldn't this be done only
3) Sometimes when doing a 'doCapture' the screen isn't finished redrawing
while the capture is done. Is there any way to make sure the screen is
finished redrawing? I know I can "send customMsg to me in 1 second" but I
thought there might be a "import snapshot wait until redraw" or something;-)

thanks again!
