Ah-- I loaded ConnectorMorphStates-nk.002.pr, not the NK- project you

Plain old text. By the way, should I be able to bold face in a
workspace? I can change the point size only with the menus I can see.
I was thinking of using some diagramming tool to describe the project
internals, but that would force me to add that project to mine, so I left
it out. .. Hmm, that makes me think: perhaps I could make the diagrams a
separate project, and say, first you must file in your project to get it to
work. It will be nice when the new modules stuff is available.
It would be nice if squeak had a little demo system built in. If you could
take the event recorder scripts and then convert them into messages to
windows (i.e., instead of capturing the click you capture the message
activating the menu item) it would be nice. Probably a highly non-trivial
exercise. I know I worked with automated testing tools for C++ graphic
applications that did something like this extremely poorly. With smalltalk
it should be much easier, but that doesn't make it easy.
Or perhaps the application could be script-enabled in some fashion. I
haven't looked at the scripting stuff enough to know if that's plausible.
