Ah! Once again, crystal clear explanations from Jacque. Thanks that makes sense now.

That meant you had to add lines of code to re-initialize them so they'd still work after every edit. It not only made us crazy, it made the RR team crazy too, so one of the first things they did after RR obtained the engine was to change that. The option to go back to the old behavior is still there but I'd be surprised if anyone actually prefers to use it.
