    To get a better understanding of how you are using the ModelConverterX tool I have setup a survey. So if you are using ModelConverterX, I would appreciate it if you spend some time to answer those questions. Knowing which functionality, importers and exporters matter most to you, helps me to make the tool even more useful in the future.

    For example I have some ideas to change the GUI so that information is presented more clear. But to know if this would really help, I would like to have a better understand if you are normally running ModelConverterX full screen or not.

    So thanks already for taking some time to fill in this survey. The survey is on the same server as the ModelConverterX development release and might take a few seconds to load.

    Took the survey. But I forgot the Conversion I'm missing most - FS2004 Aircraft MDL to FS2004 Scenery MDL.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Tom, I'll keep it in mind when I analyse the results.

    And also thanks to everybody else who filled in the survey until now.

    Hi Folks

    Arno -
    Cheers
    I'd populated your survey yesterday,
    but my response to SCASM files (including API macros) useage,
    should have been Often.

    Also forgot Which functionality are you missing most in ModelConverterX?
    to additionally include optimisation of SCASM files (including API macros).

    Arno...

    To add to my survey on what would I like to see...

    I think a x, y, and z locations given at the bottom (status line) would be helpful using the cursor as the point of reference.

    Thanks Paul.

    Can you explain what you mean with that function?

    Hi Paul,

    OK, clear. I see that more as a bug than a new feature, since it is already supposed to work like that :). The bug is already on my buglist.

    Thanks to all of you for the feedback. I have closed the survey now and made an overview of the results. On my blog I have also posted some interesting findings from the survey.
