Hi Bill,
Can do a quick test for me?

Rename this file from ".c" to ".vgadget" and try it.

If that fails, rename the file to a ".zip" and open it and look for a ".lua" file and open in Notepad.

This did work for me.

Hello All,

Here is the most up-to-date zip file of the Easy Tool Gadgets.

Rename the "EasyTools20200526.zip" file to "EasyTools.vgadget" and run the "Install New Gadget..." from the Gadgets menu.

Please let me know if you have any issues.

Hi All,

I just posted a youtube video for a User Guide on the Dovetail Tool Database. (3 minutes)

I am working on the Wiki on structure and content. I don't believe the PowerPoint to a PDF was sufficient. In addition to having written documentation and graphics. I intend to provide short videos on how to and user guides for the more complex Easy Gadgets. I'm thinking this video format will work. I have to say, nailing this down on the format and process seems to be the hardest part of this endeavor of generating some gadgets. Please share your thoughts.

Here is the link:

Thanks,
Jim
