Jerry,

Yes I updated and tested in GLX2 the first chance I had. It is very  
fast. Noticeably faster by far.

One comment about how I use GLX2: It seems I keep switching out of the  
script edit environment to get to the (rev)property inspector from the  
norm rev menu and then switch back. I need constant quick access to  
the rev stack, card, object inspector for my workflow. I am not  
familiar with the GLX2 preferred method to do this?

That said:

I love the way Web 2.0 sites are available in the script editor.

I love clickable handlers, In fact that was the only way to track down  
the RR Bug 6019 by using the clickable handler name to find where  
revSave in revLibrary were misbehaving. Since no one else seemed to  
have my particular bug Mark was giving me ideas of things to check in  
the revLibrary and we found a workaround/fix for 6019 which I am very  
pleased with. My computer froze at least thirty times during the time  
it took to find that bug.

I love tabs for quick checks and code changes.

I love auto archives. (saved me during the 6019 freezes)

I now love the hover over an item to see what it's name was during  
writing a script.

Thanks again,

Tom McGrath
