Managing Profiles

I struggled with Profiles in getting them in the order I wanted them in and always having my Transmit profiles at the top of the list.
I took to adding a number starting with 01 thru xx for my Global profiles that had transmitter profiles.  and R01 thru Rxx for my receive only profiles that I also build a transmit profile for that said turn the TX power to zero (0) and the mike all the way down.  I know FRS inhibits the transmitter out of band but it pays to be careful. 
The sort is alpha and fixed the only special characters allow are $ - and _ .  So by starting with 01 instead of 1 it put is first and 02 second etc...  The R for my receive only profiles starts the at the bottom of the list.   

As for FRS and Ideas 
1: it would help if I could have just edited the name of the Profile as I was I had to load it, rename it , save it then delete the old one. 
2: allow a few additional special characters like : or # or *  
3: Make the profile manager dialog box work so when you grab the corner and try to enlarge the box it actually opens up the viewing area so you see the whole list and all the way across...

    Some nice ideas Dan.

    Hopefully, the long-awaited profile and persistence documentation should not be too long coming.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
