Sounds like the Ace tool, once mastered, is a lot better than trying to
build gauges in Notepad!
 
Can it open previously designed gauges? That is to say does it let you look
into any gauges in your FS9/X folders?

Cracked it!
 
Fooled around with the ACE tool, found a preview page which displays the
gauge while you edit the properties. If you drag the properties window up
enough you can see all of the gauge text properties displayed, and by
swopping between the elements, you can compare the properties in each
element. I found a single typo, corrected it, and watched the 2nd element
magically appear in the preview window.
 
If they had mentioned the preview window in the tutorial I might have got
here faster!
