Thanks for that, much appreciated
It seems I can't drag through transparent parts of a PNG image
The front element is a transparent PNG image 
Yes, but I need to have them display text that was saved on previous pages and be in different positions. So global is not an option as it is in a fixed location.
Thanks, it was not saving when chained, I needed to trigger it with a separate element - good to know there is a database.

Can we have different text locations on pages with IB4?
Thanks Inna, all that is OK but will not save the text so that it is displayed when the app is re-opened.

Do you anticipate that having a text input field that is saved on exit and able to be seen in differing places on various pages will be a feature of IB4?

I have been doing this on webpages with Java and in widows exe files as variables - this an example
Thanks, where can I now find step by step instructions for users to be able to type into a text input box and have the contents saved and displayed on multiple pages?
