i tried to use dollarsigns in the GUI-Objects and after some trying i found
maybe a possible handling:
if you type "\$1" instead of "$1" the properties-dialog takes it and next
time fills it with the arguments given.
i recognized that (at least in windows) you should not mix up slash and a
backslash. the slash confuses the object.
i think the problem of copying objects with certain properties also appeared
with upper und lower limits of numberboxes or when copying arrays. the
recieves and sends are - for me - very helpful!
