As I explained at the time, the details of the errors you reported have been
passed to the programmer, who will be able to look into the problem.

Please bear in mind that, as with many RISC OS programmers, the Photodesk

precedence to RISC OS work, which certainly does not pay very many bills
these days :-( Having said that, work progresses at a constant, steady pace.
