I agree but we could begin with some tools to easily draw some simple figures with text or other figures applied as overhead transparencies (layers) to illustrate and animate easily some concepts, draw hierarchical diagrams and the like, all using REBOL. That could give something more or less like the powerful tools created a long time ago by Dan Bricklin, the author of Visicalc (the first spreadsheet if I remember) and named DEMO-IT or its successor DEMO2. Later he did the Web site innnovative creator products Trellix and TrellixWeb. But one thing at a time. If someone can put together the features of Layout-ed from Carl with somew of its presentation demo concepts refined a bit - from a current user perspective - and add some whistle and bells around it - from the paint program amongst many others - and wrapped with some dialect too we are on road ... Who (and how many to support) is voluntary ? Sorry I'm not good enough for the moment but I am voluntary to try and test the many revisions if any ;-) Regards, Gerard
