To': le.pasa'

The decision of whether or not the right button activates the window is made on a per window basis.  Most windows including the exec window do not.  TEDIT does right buttoning in the main window is considered a selection.  I tried right buttoning in the title (where the window command menu comes up) and it didn''t activate.  I don''t know whether or not Tedit can/should/will change this.  I changed the attn to Sybalsky.'
This didn''t say which system he was running in but this may have changed since Carol so you may want to see if he still isn''t happy with Harmony.'
