It would be nice to have a Mac version too. Any thoughts on what is limiting to adapt it?

    Wow, I had no idea there was a version of Microsoft Word for the Mac. The module would have to be pretty heavily modified to work on a Mac. There are a bunch of Windows API specific dlls being called. There are also places that assume Windows paths that would need to be changed.

    That's what I was afraid of. I've heard that the new versions of Office mess up/dont have the Visual Basic even more on the Macs (I haven't upgraded yet), so if this is done at all, it should probably wait for the dust to settle.
