Thanks Bert.  Ah yes, it's coming back to me.  However, don't I need  
to use a Playfield as my "container" object?  I followed your  
instructions - drawing a rectangle and embedding my line into it.   
But then I couldn't find a "rectangle include" tile in any of the  
categories - is it there and I just missed it?  In a playfield, it's  
in the Collections category.
