Beta6

Installed Beta 6. I like having the slow scan.

LOL, I already went through that one myself wondering what it did and trying to figure it out. Specifically in this instance, it's exactly what Jim labeled it. A dummy switch that doesn't do anything yet. It's there for a future release of something.

A different topic, but related to the subject Beta 6.

I don't know if this is by design or a bug. I accidently found that when running the Aquarium in windowed mode a right click in the Aquarium window terminates the program.

Not really a major issue, but it was surprising.

Cliff asked for that because when using MA3 with his living-room display he had access to a mouse, but not a keyboard. I have to admit that it's now my usual way of terminating the program.

Not a problem then. As long is it is on purpose. It was just such an unexpected, non-standard, behaviour I was concerned it might be a bug. Glad to hear that it's not.

Now, about that title bar blink problem ....

I would check this out:

I really don't like these catchall "Beta 5 problems" or "Beta 6 issues" threads by the way. It makes it even harder to keep up with conversations. Just my opinion.

Yes, I'm familiar with that thread. I've been participating in it.

My comment was just a friendly little nudge in the ribs to Jim. I probably should have added a smiley.
