hi Alan.

I ran into the problem of $devices.Screen a year ago —  it was all over our studio 5 code.. and then magically disappeared in latest versions of studio.

the replacement (that mike pointed out - is Preview)

we changed all our code that referred to $device.Screen or $cdevice to   $device.Preview

it didn’t change any of our other code — thinks just worked.

I like the features of preview in that you can now have thumbnails and zoom in on reports

Kelly mentioned you could bring it back.  I have not tried that .  I just like preview much more.
