Thank you for doing this. I liked your GE3 ones as well. Two comments: 1) At least the first one doesn't seem to layout well in OpenOffice. Most of the pointers end up pointing to the wrong things. This is probably because OO is lame, but if you could easily make it work there, that might help some folks. 2) Play tour: The ui is non-obvious. Here is my explanation. There are 3 kinds of tours, depending on what item is selected when you hit the ">" button. If a checked item is selected, a "old-style" tour of all checked items in My Places will happen. If a folder is selected, all items in the folder are toured, whether they are checked or not. Useful when you want to do a tour, but don't want the icons turned on. If a line/path is selected (eg: by default after doing a driving directions), the line (and only the line) is played in a smooth manner.
