This function is documented but appears illegal (I get an error message on trying to invoke it)

I gotta ask, are you trying this function with images already open in PRISM? or trying to actually open one?

Hi Hamza

Yes - I am interacting with an open (guide cam) image
and yes - selectimg works!
My script works in simulation - awaiting field trials....

I am tryng to partially automate star positioning on a spectrograph slit... I had though the 'move by vector' (context menu item in an image) might work, but I dont understand its operation (it seems counterintuitive to me) and there is no documentation as far as I can see?

I think @Olivier Thizy can help with this, he is our subject matter expert ;)

Ok - I can report the script was debugged in the field .... and works... :)
(Still curious to know how the 'move vector' thing works though )
