Awesome. Have been a fan of Xpert Tools since the late 1990s with version 1.11. This adds functionality on top of that again. Some crashes on Quark 4.11 within OS9.22; so there are still some bugs for them to iron out; and ShadowCaster no longer shows in the Xpert CommandPads lists any more thus can't be added. Have ended up mixing it with 1.11 and 2.13 versions to get a full set of functionality.
