No worries. But I'm quite surprised that AW would crash unless it's allowed
to request an invalid document position. :-O I think the real problem might
be earlier in the call stack for that one. I'll try to get the time to have
a look at it.
Well, at least it now works, and that's what in the end counts.

Way to go! Now *this* one I've got to torture. :-)

Btw, in Windows when using only the toolbar list buttons, clicking one of
the two to start a new list it allows me to click the other one, giving the
impression I'm editing both a numbered and a bulleted list. :-)
Is this a Windows-only problem or does other platforms also exhibit this
