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>
