Thanks for posting this Alex - word of warning and feature request
for RunRev - or is as ever there a way I haven't spotted?
First the warning - downloading the stack "Networked Address Book"
from revOnline automatically asked me to locate x,y, z - can't
remember - to which I naturally said no - then got myslef into an
endless loop of answer dialogues!
Now the question is - is there a way to cancel an answer dialogue?
Command period does not work - unless you are lucky and the script
loop is long - sometimes I manage to break out. I think it would be
very useful if there was a way to do this as the only way I know is
to force quit and loose all your unsaved data!
Easy to do - done it many times myself !

Would love to have a look - but scared to download again now :(

I noticed :)
