Windows doesn't natively support viewing text files but it comes with a
"better than nothing" text editor that works. I use a much improved 3rd
party text editor. OK... so UI-View doesn't "natively" display PHG circles.
SO WHAT????? There is a rather nice "add-on" that does. Do you think that
all UI-View users are too stupid to install the add-on program? It really
irks me when you make blanket statements like that. Do you perhaps think
that only users that are blind to topology gravitate to UI-View, or perhaps
ones that are less than intelligent? If you want to bash UI-View (or the
people using it) why don't you do it over on the UI-View list?
