I don't think this is terribly complicated: I cannot stand the built-in
[nor can I stand the spelling 'dialog' . . . :) ] and always roll my
own; I have recently stopped using
substacks and started using a PNG file that consists of an 'Answer
dialogue' picture in the centre
of an image that covers the whole parent stack set to something like 90%
transparency [I use GIMP].
Using the 90% transparent border stops end-users from being able to
click in areas of the stack outwith
the fake Answer dialogue.
Think of a button with a script a bit like this:
set the vis of img "BigFatQuestion" to true
easy, peasy, lemon-squeezy!
