Sounds great! You could also make me a little happy by just using single
pixel lines to frame text boxes when they don't have a outline. same
goes for the bleed line... why is it getting thicker on zoom??? Same
goes for guides. Only the margins get this right. they are always 1 px
in width... (or at least so it seems to me)

Now, that was easy :-D Thanks!
I had been looking for it in the preference dialogue.

Sorry, I'm on the list, but I don't follow it anymore, really. What is
the resource manager? I'll check tomorrow, I guess. it's late in Germany
right now, as you know and I'm also studying currently for my exam on

Sounds like the most-important stuff should already be in in 1.3.6
I'll check how fast text editing is. It says it was slow for large
texts, but I find it unresponsive already with basically no text.
I'm specifically referring to selecting text. It's actually horribly
slow and unresponsive...


Thanks again for the answer!

Take care!
