Wow, I've always just accepted the norm, just random gibberish on OSX.

Thank you for the late Christmas present :)

A couple years ago I ported the Windows version to 64 bit, and then Mitford House cleaned that up and fixed a bug or two in it, before shipping it with Studio 8.  I did not build a stubbed-out Mac equivalent.  If the Omnis engineers don't have time to do that, I could give it a shot, but I'd submit an enhancement request for starters - they probably just overlooked it.
