That's a great new feature. I just tidied up my Wall-E project.

Would it be possible on your next update to add "Move Up/Down" so we can re-arrange/group our scripts in Script Manager?

I'm just getting back to playing with ARC and all the new updates I've fallen behind on in the last month.

Still need to get my EZ-B repaired and up and running again. :-(


DJ, you are amazing! Never thought of a carreer at Nasa ? I think they would benefit a great deal for the next generation of Mars robots.



Finally tinkered with Script Manager. LOVE IT. I can see the whole script name and window is resizeable. After I copied my old scripts into it I noticed right away I really should have consolidated a couple. This is visually appealing to me. Thank you!
