Thank you Max, nice video showing Launchpad in action.

A small point - some of the icons seem to launch a boot program which installs extensions while Launchpad is running. Launchpad is a normal job, and installing extensions while a job is running is not normally a good move, as it risks something going wrong later.

Of course, this was just for filming a demo video, so no problem, but I would strongly recommend that any extensions any of your programs may need are installed from a single boot program before Launchpad is executed (i.e. installed with NO jobs running).

Thanks Dilwyn !!!
I will modify my boot file in order to include all the extensions during the startup!

Ok, never used LauchPad, but why are outlines of items available, when there is nothing in it? This sems to be a bug to me or mere a general bug of the system.
