Can anyone tell me how to properly remove an active document???
When I try Remove() ,it is deleted from the document-list, but still lingers onscreen. Only when I select a different document (by hand) does it finally go.............. Also, I can`t seem to make another document get to the screen by making it active..why?

KillDocument() will remove a document (and frees memory) and SetActiveDocument()..well, the name says it all.

maybe I should mention what I have been doing...
I wish to copy some objects from another LOADED document (using Getclone().. ),,, I can do this ,by setting another document as active ,using SetBit() ,or Getnext(). The objects copy perfectly well , but the active document refuses to be SEEN by the viewport! Only the loaded one wishes to show itself onscreen . Even when I Remove() the loaded document, IT stays in the viewport (even though it has been deleted) . Only when I use the mouse to choose another document does the offending one finally die!
Is this some kind of MESSAGE issue (I admit I am not too hot on this subject)....

upps sorry. I COFFEE you can use Remove() only for the documents (the memory freeing should be handled by Cinema then). And that the document cannot be seen after setting it as active is a COFFEE bug. And there is no workaround for it I know of.

dlovas (april 2003) had the same problem (I only just found it).
He was instructed to use KillDocument()....which seems to be only for C++.
I used it ,and it worked! (I should have just tried the thing ,Samir!).
WHY can I not find a single mention of this function in the COFFEE sdk?
Have I missed it ? If not, it really should be included in capital letters!
Unwritten features are not particularly handy!
