SC, Image Files and MPI

Introduction

I hope this is going to be growing tutorial on using SuperCard.
I am going to try to cover some basics in a hopefully interesting way.

The tutorial will be based on some ways handling image files, but it will cover quite a few runtime editing concepts and methods.

It will also cover using ModuloPI the alternative Runtime Editor from Stéphane Leys. MPI, as I will refer to it is avalible for free at http://modulopi.free.fr/. In my opinion MPI is a lot more powerful and easier to use that the Runtime Editor that ships with SuperCard.
I will however add some instructions for folk using the RTE. These will have this background color
When I refer to MPI's PI (property inspector) users of the RTE can use the Property Inspector in the RTE's Utilities Menu. It is not as fully featured as MPI's PI.

I don't claim to be a great scripter, but I have tried all the scripts.
With SuperCard there are always other and better way to do things. Please let me know any better ways. jhj@dircon.co.uk

The tutorial is produced in SuperCard and exported to image files and html with SuperCard.

First we need to open SuperCard and MPI and set some preferences.
