Ops, my mistake...

richard, there's an PAD editor compatible with the "windows" PAD files 
for the Macintosh, it's built in filemaker and its available on the net 
from http://www.chickengirl.com/padmaker.php   it's called PADMaker and 
it works.  MacPAD is just a plist with couple tricks, and the objc libs 
for autoUpdate.

I would endorse normal PAD files.
