A Notebook Button

This is a response to Vol 8 Larry 4 ("Make smaller buttons")...


Although the box containing the down arrow looks empty much of the time, there are actually THREE buttons which sometimes appear there [for example See Vol 8 Larry 1]. A tiny notebook button could be crammed in there somehow but it would be awful ugly look'n.

Fortunately, I have devised what I think is much more clever solution to this problem. From now on, if you want to jump directly to the transit stack OR the pelago notebook, simply move the cursor over the Archipelago button and HOLD DOWN THE OPTION KEY.

As long as the option key is held down, two buttons will appear over the Archipelago button, one labeled transit and one labeled notebk. Just click on the button of your choice. If you let up on the option key or move out of the Archipelago button area, the two option buttons will automatically hide themselves again. This new feature is included in the help screen (type ?).

Tell me how you like it!
