Function Folder path & sizeable object properties dialog

OK 2 more features to be added to the list=

1:
It seems as though the path to the Function folder is hard coded into Neobook. It would be HIGHLY desireable to be able to change the path so the default function location could be stored elsewhere. Even if it had to be edited in the registry. I have even tried remapping it with a shortcut to another folder with no luck.
Reason: I, along with many other people never store any files on the same drive as the OS, only software installations. All special folders, including the Desktop, are remapped to another drive. This drive could be a separate partition on the same disk or a completely separate disk (both methods have their pros and cons). Lots of good reasons for it but a different subject.

2:
The book Properties dialog window IS sizeable. Very useful! However, the Object Properties dialog windows are NOT sizeable. Very UNuseful!
Reason: When editing action scripts in the Book properties (i.e. Startup, Shutdown, Subs, etc) it is much easier to resize the window and still have quick access to the other buttons, action scripts etc., than to use the full screen editor and have to close it before accessing other buttons, action scripts etc.

Realy looking forward to version 6! 8)

EDIT: Had to add another :D

3:
How about a :CustomWindow_OnMove or :Container1_OnMove subroutine! :idea:

Those are all good suggestions. I'll add them to the list.

I agree that the function folder should probably be moved to another location or user selectable. Of course, we don't want to break existing pubs.

Very true. For this reason I think an entry in the registry is the solution. When Neobook is installed the default could/should be what it is now but the advanced user would then have the option to remap it 8)
