Convert from a symbol to several successive lists

    Say I have several lists, each starting with a keyword, formatted as a symbol. I want to cut them into several lists, starting with each of the keywords. With a comma separating the lists in the symbol, I can use "set" then bang a message box: the message box will output each list separately, as in this example:
    Any better/more elegant way?

      using a message object should already be the best trick here. it is the only object which "detects" and "translates" commas like a human brain does. one could use textedit, too, but it is like 3 times more complicated.

      Thanks! I guess it's indeed the only object that can do that efficiently enough.
