I have only just resubscribed to the mailing list so may have missed some conversations on this subject, so I apologise for hijacking this thread.  

I am interested in this new to me layer mode of “container” being discussed here.  I see that it is also mentioned in “This week in Livecode” :     Issue #179 here: <> . I did a google search for more information and found this page : <>  which google reports as from 2017 but that may be in error.

I wonder if the web page I found refer to the same mode as is being discussed in this thread and are the details on the page correct?

best wishes 
Simon Knight
