I use the OSScrollBar regularly, but I don't understand what you're
trying to do - what do you mean by "move everything in the correct order"?
I cant explain the problem very well, can i email you a sample program?

No, I'm on dialup and don't want to risk having my bandwidth swamped.
Can you upload it somewhere?
I took a quick look at your file.
I think it isn't working in its current state as the behavior you have
attached to the scroll bar requires all the sprites it refers to to be
the same height, or evenly spaced by the same amount.
I tried to re-work this into 2 files where one is an LDM, but couldn't
find my way around some fundamental problems (like how an LDM can
determine the sourceRect of the file its member points to), so I made
the scroll bar scroll the contents of a MIAW. This also has problems (if
your stage is moved the window also needs to move, no layering in the
score, ...) but could serve as a starting point. You'll need to view it
from a projector, not authoring, to have the window appear properly
