Apparently PDFKit is the root of all evil there -- this is
not surprising since as a Path Finder beta tester I can assure
you we had some rainy days because of PDF. Currently, only
Apple knows how to use it. And even then, APPLE engineers can
produce with apple software files that KILL PDFKit. Look at the
The PDF presentation linked at the bottom of the page
and scroll until page 22. BOOM.
For OgreKit, yeah, I know, but I though that the *panel* was not
part of the kit itself and just an interface created by the TS
developers. One problem is, maybe we need somebody talking
japanese to more efficiently communicate with the developers!
