I didn't ask that very well. I meant, how do I make the box bigger that 
I'm trying to think outside of (it took me a while to figure out what I 
was trying to say :-/ ).

Mixed metaphors and all that.

Anyway, I figured out a few of my issues (though not perfectly): I can 
create a workspace window and embed a painting morph within it and sorta 
not paint outside the boundaries of the window. I can add little buttons 
in the tile bar to switch modes between coding and annotating, etc.

Various glitches include: being able to set the size of the window so 
small that the border is obscured by the paint area so I have to use 
halos instead of the window border to resize the window larger; not 
having any feedback for switching between coding/annotating mode; etc.

Thanks for yor feedback.
