DragImage question

Thanks, I can't quite get this to work.  If  I use your code, I get an  
error on the export command "Chunk: No such object" and the file is  
not created.

I changed the export command to ....."file "DragImageField" instead  
(file instead of image), then the file was created but my Mac says  
it's a simple text file.  Then the set command fails with the same  

Any ideas?
