including me :-) okay i meant : MOST layout people wouldn't be caught 
dead writing software ( they'd rather play quake :-) )

what i am saying is that the people who write software sometimes have no 
clue on how creative users are at using it . and then when a new release 
comes there is a bunch of frustration because ne small thing got changed 
that seemed irrelevant to the programmer but gazillions of users use 
'creatively'.

I am switching over to DXP ( waiting for my 3 copies to come through ) 
and i'm running the Demo in the mean time to get the feel of it.  and 
they moved the Global button. Like when you select a bunch of stuff and 
then wanted to apply a change globally. ( select a bunch of tracks and 
you want to move them to a different layer , or change their width ) . 
still haven't found how to do it.

but every other thing i checked out on DXP so far is great. every change 
brings its pains.
