What he said. The promise of creating standalones and encrypted stacks containing code sounds promising, but there are caveats. It begs the question, how do we encrypt script only stacks or libraries? I don’t use encrypted stacks because my code is for internal use only, but if I ever went

I get a user entered password and encrypt it before storing it. It works cross platform. I suppose it would depend on what is in the original string. For instance option-v produces a checkmark on a Mac, but NOT on a PC and I assume Linux. Normal ASCII-256 characters should work fine. Bob S

As a pattern of a graphic, I don’t think so. Even scaling the graphic does not shrink or alter the position of the pattern. Why are you using a graphic instead of just an image? I think you can mask an image, so it should be possible to only show through what you want. Ideally though, just
