arrays are always drawable, as far as i know.
but you have to somehow begin drawing at the graphical line of the array. if
you just click in the window, the array does not automatically jump to the

i don't know about the implemented functions of the array-object, but there
is a big external called vasp, which can do some window-functions and

for example if you have big messageboxes (for initialisation of patches, or
whatever) you can edit its content (shortcut ctrl+t) with this editor. you
