I made a beginning project using Andy's New Project from the Project Manager.

The thing worked great as is, I added a few routines, the thing still
worked and compiled great. Week later I changed a single PICTURE FIELD
attribute from _noFramed to _noFramedNOCR (no click reverse), saved,
recompile the Include, and suddenly, I get an error message that

"t,l,b,r is already DIMmed, check that it is not globally defined already"
or something to that sort. Well there are 4 or 5 of those in the include
that the project manager generates, and I had changed no globals or
anything else.

Completely irritating. I change everything back to what it was, same errors.

Guess I have to start all over now or something.

Not only that, the Help submenu in my FB editor app will show up with all
the help topic choices when the program is first started, but after a few
compiles (or one), the Help menu reverts to just a "Help", and no more
submenu. Funky. (OS 8.1 peculiarity?)
