Deciding not to use a tool like Dialog Studio is your choice, but it is based on "old skool" attitude or pure cussedness -- also your choice.
while it's true that it is my choice, but i don't hand code all of my dialogs because of an "'old skool' attitude". hell, i wasn't even around for this so-called 'old skool'. i code all my dialogs by hand because i can do the arithmetic to properly align my controls in my head. it's pretty trivial, isn't it?
anyway, the point of this post wasn't to pat myself on the back for being one of the few (though i doubt this) that still hand code dialogs (though i think i did that too), i just wanted to be a voice for the few.
