problems with Stephan Lebans save-modify-restore Relationships Windowutility

P: n/a
I downloaded Stephan's utility from his website but can't get it to
work - or maybe I'm not driving it properly!
The form works OK with the existing 3 "views" - I can switch between
them and they display changes fine.
But if I add or remove a table from any one of them, strange things
For example: start with a fresh copy of the downloaded database.
Open the form and click on the "Admin" view.
Right click and click on "Show Table"
Select CustomerSales and Add.
Close the Show Table Dialog box. You'll see the new table added to
the view.
Now try selecting another view, say RelationshipsView1.
On my machine, the new table is stuck on it too.
The same with RelationshipsView2, it is hidden behind customer_4.
Switch back to Admin view.
Assign a new name in the Unique Id text box and click to "Save the
current relationship layout".
Close and reopen the form. The change has disappeared!
If I saved the relationship window , the extra table does get saved,
but when you look at all the views, it's stuck on all of them again.
I guess I must be doing something horribly wrong, because I can't see
anyone else having these problems.

Although, looking at the code, it doesn't look like it's clearing the
relationship window before applying a new view - just repositioning
existing windows.

Would like to get it working - useful for large databases ...
