    Hi Justin

    I compiled your code under SCO5.x & Caldera. Same problem as you described.
    The Documentation suggest the use of FL_ALIGN_INSIDE instead
    of FL_ALIGN_CENTER for sliders. This did not work on my systems.

    A look at the <forms.h> header describes an
    FL_ALIGN_VERT /* No functional yet */ option.
    This woks just fine.

    Why does it work ? Only your xfroms designer
    knows this and other mysteries of our universe.

    Hope this helps.
