I did that. That why I decided not to upgrade to RR at work.
This is not a valuable project, it's just a plain simple vanila browser.
Naturally, since I needed a home license the only choice I had was

If I had this geometry bug hit my Migration tool, it would take at least
week to resize everything...
But I have backups, I have mirrors, I have RDFs, I have every fool proof
feature built-in in production at work. MC is for work, RR is for fun
Dont take me wrong. RR is capable but with the GUI bugs, I'd rather not
I've seen how RR changes scripts without asking, the debugger doesn't
update variable watcher values, and that's way too much already...

You can't negate that the IDE doesn't have bugs! ;)
But I dont see bugs in MC2.51, I just see them in RR... Im mean the IDE's
Im not stubborn regarding bug entry. Im squeezed for my personal time and
research. If this was for work, I wouldn't mind taking my sweet time to
those bugs in a clear description for all it's worth. Scott knows this.

replacetext was working in MC, it doesn't in RR... It does in the msg not
in the scripts!
Resizing a group in MC works, not in RR... Is this for real? And the
geometry mgr is
also acting up on this group with the zoom feature...
I'd like to help, seriously, but it's not on my private time for a stupid

Like I said, I bought the studio for fun and personal development.
I do want to improve it (like for a super script editor and adding XOS
objects to the environment (save another 90% time development)
but there is little motivation or need for this right now. So be it...
