This is a modified "Object Library".

I did work on this stack as well, did you use that as a base? The two main things I did was add some drag and drop to place (both images tab and in the objects tab), and made it so that creating a new object library actually works. And I also made it resizable.

Additionally I made an revOXTObjects set with some objects I created, or from community members (some HH in there) various old example stacks or resource center stuff, some handy handlers. Would gladly add contributions to it, perhaps add custom set downloading to the 'Resource Depot' stack for in-IDE downloading.

I should probably change that Resource Depot stack to be a non-Emscripten+browser based package manager stack (something like Gaskins LiveNet stack). The 'webstack' thing was just the easiest way to get the files served via GitHub and into the IDE. It's can be a bit slow to load, but I couldn't get that working with using libURL, I did try with intermittent success. Currently this setup needs the files being served (currently just a handful of Extensions/Widgets there) to be Base64 encoded. If you have no idea what I'm going off topic about it's the thing I replaced the 'Extension Store' with in the Extension Manager stack (added in DP3 or DP4):

I didn't use your version of the object library - only because I'd not realised you'd changed it.
Having said that, I very much like the drag and drop idea.

No problem, glad to see this gets updated in the next RC version, so please just use your version of the object library and disregard mine (your edits were my edits with your additional features, so yours can be considered more relevant and up to date).

Many thanks for your work on all this by the way.
