Is Anyone using the XPDFViewer?

I looked at my working code.

Every where I set the rect, I do so by:

   XPDFViewer_Set "pdfViewer","RECT", rect of grc "pdfRect" of grp 
"pdfViewer" of me

where the graphic "pdfRect is a rectangle that is used to to map the 
area the pdf viewer appears in.

Try creating a graphic called whatever you want. Set the rect of it to 
100,100,500,500 and then

XPDFViewer_Set "pdfviewer", "rect", rect of graphic <whateverUcalledIt>
