Are more than 5 lines possible with MSGBOX
I have several programs that output a series of formated answers in a message box, unfortunately it seems that 5 discreet lines are all it can display. Is there anyway around this or is this hardcoded?

Probably leftover from 39gII code, because screen seems to fit about 10 lines (in normal size font).

You could try the "PRINT()" command instead of "msgbox()". It will show 20 lines and scroll more on the "terminal" screen.
