Now I’m really confused:

put the properties of widget id 1004 into tA

Results in an empty tA. If I put something into tA[“rect”] and then set the
properties to tA then it does move to that rect. Is that just my 2
computers (Mac and Win10)? I checked 9DP11 and 8.1.7 (will get the latest 8
now though).
