AppsAudit Fails updates ( I have not researched why yet ).
The problem is that the right pannel is unreadable with "FAILED" overlaying ontop of package names.

New icons for AppBrowser and and AppsAudit. Use the same grey circle as FLRun has and place arrow and tick in the middle in a bigger size. This would give a unified look and feel to TC icons and easier recognition of buttons.

TCExit icon requires just a small adjustment to be in line.

Looks like we are getting down to very fine tuning.  ;)
Will consider. I have already requested Dale our Team graphics guy to take a look.

Updated mnttool - added a refresh button.

A refresh button is great but how about open "mnttool" on drive detection?   If you connect a USB thumb drive for example, it is detected so why not present the mnttool which is the next expected action of the operator?  

It follows that if you connect a drive there must be some intent to use it, no?  You could take this one step further and mount the drive considering this is the intention of connecting the drive, whilst leaving the mnttool up for the inevitable removal.

Re the AppsAudit   how about a simple confirmation box when an extension is selected to be moved from either the select window to the OnBoot/OnDemand window or vice versa.

I hate confirmation boxes but the number of times I've accidentally removed an extension from a menu by selecting some place in the open window bringing the AppsAudit window to the foreground is staggering, when this happens there is no log of which app you accidentally removed.  :(

just a thought, because some folks have more than one window open at any given time :)

or require a double click to move an item.

With the 2 finger scrolling on some touchpads it is very easy to single click an item when moving fingers back to the top of the pad for the next swipe. Then you have an extension you didn't want removed or added and are back to the top of the list again!

Sorry, I didn't make it clear

The extensions are added at the bottom of the list, or removed to their original (alphabetical) position in the list in the left side window.

When an extension is added from the left window to the right window the left windows goes back to the top of the list so you need to scroll back down the entire list to find the extension you were looking for in the first place.
