(New in version 1.1 is the drag and drop support, an independent timer which can be used to overcome the bug on Macs not rebooted for longer than 24 days and the full support for mousewheel and trackpad scrolling events in all directions.)

This xtra is a MacOSX-only xtra mostly specific to Macintosh windows.There are a few functions not related to windows as well. It provides several functions to manipulate the look of the windows in Director. You can set the transparency of a window (similar to the Windows only winobj.blend property), draw the small dot inside the red close box of the window to indicate that the document inside the windows is modified or group windows together. Additionally there are several animated effects to show or hide the windows.
