Hi Geoff,

I am super excited to see you working on Navigator.

I have one little issue with it as it stands. I can not edit behaviors any longer. I am sure I am doing something wrong. I did the right click -> “Edit Behavior Scripts” on a card that has a behavior associated with it. The line is blue in color indicating that it has a behavior.

I will go back to an older version for now.

Best regards,
