Hi James

Sorry about all these complaints, but I was going to show my students the Quarks.gui,
the problem is that I don't understand it myself and can't use it.

First, I only see parts of the available quarks. (and no previous/ next buttons)

Second, I don't know what the buttons do. I can see that installed quarks have a green button with "i" on it. I then click a button on an uninstalled quark and the GUI says "Quarks modified". This would make me believe that the quark has been installed in my Extensions/quarks folder. But I see no quark there.
I recompile and would expect the quark to work, but it's not installed.

(maybe there are some other buttons that I'm not seeing?)

Third, it's not in alphabetical order, which makes it time consuming to look for
the quark to install and to spot if a quark is installed or not.

Just some late feedback on otherwise a fine tool.
