I hear you. I confess I have spent most of today really digging into  
some of the new features. One of the coolest, almost overlooked, new  
features is the ability to add User Notes to the Rev Dictionary. I've  
been playing with that. (See the entries for 'dashes' and  
'defaultFolder', for example.) All you need is a Rev Online account to  
be allowed to post. The notes are mediated by RunRev so it takes a day  
or two for them to show up. I'm looking forward to everyone posting  
great example code snippets and additional details to the Dictionary.

Back to the sandbox, I mean work.
