Positioning the message box ?

Hi Sarah,

Using "show" seems to be the problem. If you just do something like:

     set the rect of stack "Message box" to 137,554,538,696
     put "Here I am"

it will stay in the right place.

As you suggested, this works, BUT under Dreamcard development.

Unfortunately under Stack Runner (both Mac and PC), not only
does this not work, but it blows my script on the command "set".
even when preceded by a :

  show message box

In all events, under Stack Runner,  both the :

show message box

and the

put "xxx" into message box

are both inoperative ! Not a message box on the horizon !

In the doc, nothing specifies that the functions are only for
developing applications. Would this be a bug (shudder !) ?

However - thanks for the suggestions
