Just to clear up some loose ends ...

We can knock this one down and off of Bugzilla. I couldn't
sleep last night, so this morning I went and re-did the code
for the scrollbars and they now work more or less peachy
keen. The only thing that bothers me is the way that if
I have a window too small for the document and I am at
the end of a line moving (automatically moving to the next
line), AbiWord will tell me to scroll up to a point where
only the last few characters are visible. I haven't had
a chance to try this on other platforms but it bugs me enough
that I'm going to go and fix it if someone doesn't point
out that it is a feature.

You may eat your words here =;-)

I have created the resource for the current options dialog
(as it is checked into CVS for Unix). It is called
options.rsrc for reference and the window is called
(surprise, surprise) "OptionsWindow". Other than
the resource being there, I haven't done anything
to hook it up ... so feel free to fly at 'er.

I also noticed your work with the font dialog this
morning Dan ... very nice! Not fully implemented,
but it looks pretty slick.
