Subbu and Gary,

Cool. Thanks you.  If I move the object into the Squeak tab I then can
move it out of there from any project.  However, if I move the object
into the Tools tab, when I drag the object out it automatically makes a
copy of it instead.  This could be very helpful.

Thanks for all your help!
