Cool. Thank you for your help. That works great, however, if I want to
move the object into a parent object, I can't see the window
representing the parent project within the child project (that I know
of), and thus can't move the object. Is there a way to represent/see
the window of the parent project inside the child project?
For the project I'm making I want to easily move morphs from one
project to another. Maybe there should be an extra menu option to
'move to project...' under one of the halos for the main Squeak image?
I appreciate everyone's help. You surely can't say the Squeak
community isn't a friendly and helpful bunch. :-)
