Icons Disappear

Post by trailboss » Fri Dec 26, 2008 10:37 pm

I'm converting a HyperCard stack to Rev and my favorite button icons keep disappearing. Sometimes I'll open a hypercard stack in Rev, copy a card to my new Rev stack and use the buttons with their icons. The next time I open Rev, the icons are gone. Is this because the HyperCard stack isn't open?

I'm sure I'm missing something simple. How do I keep my button icons? I like my old HyperCard ones.

Hi Tom,

When Revolution opens a HyperCard stack, it creates a special background. I'm not sure about the name right now, but it should be something like hcIcons or another recognizable name. Copy this group to your new stack and all should be fine.
