      Interesting! I'll pass that along.

      I continue to work with WP and SS on an Intel machine. I hadn't
      noticed the oddity you found, but haven't had problems of any
      kind. In fact, a quirk or two of WP in Classic is gone in SS. For
      example, some dialog boxes have menus, like Find/Change. In
      Classic, move that dialog so it's not over a WP document window
      and then pull down the Insert menu. The part of the menu
      extending past the dialog is not visible (move the dialog over a
      WP document window to fix this). In SS, the entire menu appears,
      wherever the dialog is located.

      A file's creator and type info aren't always preserved when going
      through the transfer folder. This is the point of the Set Files to
      WP applets on the SS image and in the distribution. Try quitting
      SS, double-clicking its image in OSX, copying Easy Envelopes
      (nice little utility BTW) onto the image, unmounting it in OSX
      and starting SS again. Don't forget to unmount the image in the
      one OS before mounting it in the other.
