Well, unless your software audience are pasty-faced Satanic teens frolicking
in the woods trying to animate their Dark Lord (or start a new session of
Word), then I would opt out of using "invoke". Not just because of the
mental image it creates (even more so with your description), but it sounds
like it was written by someone who just learned a new, big word.
As for relocating the window, is there a financial package offered to the
window for relocation? And does the window have to stay in the same location
for one year, lest it violates the terms of its relocation package?
Too often, IMNHO, using big words just gives the appearance of trying to use
big words to impress. Nah, I like your suggestions.
