I think this is one of those cases where the default behaviour was a bad idea. Or perhaps was implemented before groups were used for much other than backgrounds. Other objects we need to set to the formatted width/height so why are groups special cased. Anyway, I would keep it simple and use `Clips to rect` so at least it’s easy to relate to the dictionary entry/property name. What would really be good and resolve this to a significant extent is if the tooltip were multi-line with the property summary included. http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=19858 <http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=19858> Cheers Monte _______________________________________________ use-livecode mailing list email@example.com Please visit this url to subscribe, unsubscribe and manage your subscription preferences: http://lists.runrev.com/mailman/listinfo/use-livecode
