Sean:
I am curious if it is a reasonable idea to edit the provisioning profile directly using BBEdit to add UDID’s for beta testing, without going to the Apple Developer site to add beta testers. I see a lot of “?”  characters when I open the provisioning profile in BBEdit, so I wonder if it is safe to edit it using BBEdit. Or perhaps create a livecode app to add new UDID’s to a provisioning profile.

What do you think?

Thanks,
Best,
Bill P
