      Hi Tim - perhaps you want to mention using the appicon message in a standalone build script, rather than doing the manual file replacement tasks on both platforms that you show in the video?

      To take a screen shot you only need Command - Shift - 4 There's no need for the Ctrl :)

      Way too complicated procedure.

      Now that it's about Advanced Standalone stuff info time, I am wondering why do all externals first get packed into mxf file, and then on EACH app launch get extracted again into temporary directory . If the sense was to "preheat" the app so that it launches faster I would understand it, but all extracted externals get replaced every time.

      I love this tutorial, is it possible to explain the proper way of interact with files and folders outside the app? I’m thinking of loading audio files (or other) to provide user interactivity, including saving the adjustments.

      Hi Tim, thanks for these video tutorials. We've added this repo with Ruby examples for building standalone apps.
