    Thanks. I was waiting for a solution to #2 (but it seems none will be forthcoming) and #3 caught me by surprise - I'd hoped autolayout would help me in making a lighter-weight solution for Xcode4 and/or 10.7. So far that doesn't seem workable either.

    Can you elaborate on #1, by private email? Offhand I don't see any look&feel differences.

    Thanks,

  • I don't know for sure, but you might be able to get around the 3rd party plug-in issue by using runtime attributes instead.
