Editor's Toolbox: Is it needed with 5.8?

Hi all,

Having just upgraded my NeoBook to the latest version and not having worked with it for the past five years or so, is a plugin like Editor's Toolbox even necessary with this latest build of NB? After reading the feature set of the Toolbox, it sounds or at least looks like a lot of that stuff has been built in to the new version of NeoBook.

Any thoughts/opinions on that?

If you need a WYSIWYG editor, then Editor's Toolbox is still useful.

Can Editor's Toolbox use DBPro variables?
Would be handy for Mailmerge type usage?

I don't know Editor's Toolbox very well, so I'm not sure. I suspect that if you embed variables in the text you will need to run it through the PopulateVariables action to make the contents of the variables show up in the document. You will have to experiment to see how well this works.

I'm not sure if I should use the .rtf or .html format for text files in my NeoBook apps. The .rtf hyperlinks don't work the way I want. But I wonder what uses up more CPU memory, a .rtf textbox or a WebBowser object with an html file? The task manager should show the memory usage...

The WebBowser would probably use more memory, but I don't think it would be a significant problem except on a very old PC.
