  1. Thanks for nice update!
    Maybe I am stupid but I can’t find a way to access a menu like the one you displayed above to “select a shortcut” to a file.

  2. “Elixir” UI needs to be improved!

  3. Is there any way to download the icon pack directly? By “Get icon pack from web” I got “org.apache.http.com.HttpHostConnectExection: Connection to http://dl/dropbox.com refused”
    Thanks a lot!
