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.
