Wow! Russell Martin did a lot of good work there!

However . . .

1. Splash Screens:

In CREATOR under MenuItem "Windows/Splash Screen" you
are dropped
straight into a Splash Screen Designer that allows you
set all sorts of text items and choose a background

You cannot set the textFont or the textSize which is

However if one has a Backdrop Image the text is not
displayed which is a bit of a b*gg*r!

Mr Tigabyte has good ideas, but (if, as I suspect) he
is working toute seul, probably doesn't have enough
manpower or feedback to  implement things well. Of
course if his Forums worked he would get some bright
thinking chaps like us to give him a helping hand.

Time for RR to steal this one! And, improve on it.

2. Also under the MenuItem "Windows" (Um, unfortunate
choice of word - "palettes" might go down better in
some quarters):

Menu Designer


About Box Designer (errm, a clone of the Splash Screen

These are WELL WORTH A LOOK, and could, indeed, give
some folks pause for thought.

3. The Preferences are very primitive.
