    hi - i have few questions please:
    1) is it possible to position with co-ordinates jit.windows on the screen?
    2) how do i get rid of the menubar in presentation mode?
    3) if i have a message of text, how would i cut out the first (or last) series of letters/words?
    4) how could i extract metadata (like tags) from images?
    5) would it be preferred for me to post each of these questions separately?
    thanks,
    josh

      helooo...
      >1) is it possible to position with co-ordinates jit.windows on >the screen?
      pos and rect attributes of jit.window
      >2) how do i get rid of the menubar in presentation mode? > border and fsmenubar atributes of jit.window
      >3) if i have a message of text, how would i cut out the first (or >last) series of letters/words? > umm to get words of a phrase you can use zl in ecils, slice or iter mode
      few days ago i been in the situation of break words in letters and i dont found a straight way or object to do it, so i solved sending the word in a message to a atoi->iter->itoa dont know if its the most efficient way,, sure somebody else can tell us a btter way to do this,, but for me works because isnt a persistent operation in a patch..
      >4) how could i extract metadata (like tags) from images? > qt.movie have messages to get tags but in the help files says is for mp3 tags.. dont know if works for images..
      >5) would it be preferred for me to post each of these questions >separately? > i think this is the best way.. all in one..
      bye, o

      Depending on what you are trying to do, you might also consider unpack or route.
