Hi,

Some time ago I asked about dotted lines disappearing from my new G3
running MacOS 8.5...
Jonathan (thanks, Jonathan) replied he'd a similar problem which he got
around by using

PEN 1,1,1,_patXOR,3

With some twiddling, I managed to get the static dotted box up and running
again.
(Note that I never had this problem on pre-G3 machines, like my 68K based
powerbook.

However, I've had no end of problems producing a dotted marquee box. Can't
do it :-(
Some I tried the Marching Ants demo on Function Junction III
- I hope everyone's gone out and bought this :-)
And that doesn't work on my G3 either - so it's not just my dodgey coding.

Has anyone else found this? Is it a B&W G3, extension conflict or MacOS 8.5
problem?

Andy
