I am still pretty new to Rev so I did not know what to
expect. I am sure it is somewhere in the docs but I
don't always catch it the first time I read it. I wasn't
aware of using the arrowkey for a history of last
messages in the msg box. Thanks for the info!
So should this be reported as a bug or should we
consider it the standard way Rev should operate?
