    Default Frame object properties

    First, this is not related to only the latest build!

    I have a layout which has multiple frame objects. The layout is NOT a tabbed form or subform....simply a one-layer form.

    I can set the properties of the frame to whatever I desire with the object editor, but I am unable to COPY APPEARANCE of the edited frame to the other frame objects on the form.

    All frame objects are identical in size. There is no information within the frame....simply a square frame.

    Why does the PASTE APPEARANCE to ALL not work? Even the PASTE APPEARANCE to another single frame does not work.

    This seems to only happen with FRAME OBJECTS.

    copy appearance simply was not implemented for frame objects.

    i will add it to a future version.

    Thanks so much, Selwyn! You folks have done a great job with A5! I was very apprehensive about switching from A4V6 but now that I am beginning to find my way around A5V5, I love it!
    It is a whole new world!!

    Thanks again

    glad you like it.

    have just added it.

    if you don't want to wait for the next patch, you can download an interim update of the system.aex file from

    http://downloads.alphasoftware.com/patches/system_aex.zip

    close a5, unzip this file into your a5 program folder and then restart.

    copy appearance for a frame will then work.
