I just tried rubberband and siblings  in the olpc image.

- There is no more sibling item in the halo menu therefore no way for creating sibling using rubberband.
- The green halo becomes green olive when shift clicked but creates a copy, not a sibling!

Shift clicking on the green halo of a morph create a sibling, it seems that it is the only way for creating siblings with the olpc image unless removing the etoy user friendly property.

a need: rubberband needs to be fixed.

a wish:  the useful item 'indicate all siblings'  should be added in the  viewer menu after the item 'reveal me' if the morph has siblings.

Thanks for your reply.  Yes, I'm well aware of the 'hold down shift'  
on the copy handle to make a sibling.  I did that.  However, I see  
that I failed to mention in my post that I was referring to the OLPC  
version of etoys (2.1 #1565)
