Yes that would work, and wouldn't leave a hidden button taking up space on
the tool bar.

By the way, I don't see how one keeps a copy from the Journal to a new
Journal item.  One
can copy to the clipboard and then keep a text file to the Journal from the
primary Journal
view (in the panel for the object icon - Sugar 0.88), and, in the extended
Journal object
view, one can copy files as text to attached devices--but how would one keep
a copy of
the running Activity?

Thanks for the consideration!
