Syntax trapping, test output readout and a full help system for the variables. A help system for the program would be nice. For example, while developing and testing, you don't always create elements in the logical order that they need to finish in. As far as I've found to date, the ACE tool only lets me insert a new element on the end of the gauge module. I can't believe its not possible to insert where you need to, but its not apparent how you do this. There's another feature marked as I recall 'Control Palette', I'm sure I could use this, but again no help. If you do the examples given in the tutorial no reference is made to either element insertion in the body of the module or this 'Control Palette'. The tutorial is the only ACE help you get, unless its buried somewhere I haven't looked of course! Frank T.
