Using new edge overlay

Hi,
I just discovered the new (to me at least) edge overlay functions.  I am the one who originally wrote it and I think the changes are great and want to applaud whoever did the improvements.

There does not seem to be any info on how to use the features, so I may be using it wrong, but I have a couple problems:
1.  The file number never increments beyond 1 when saving, so only one overlay can be saved.
2.  To get to the edge overlay menu I need to navigate the menu system and this requires the use of up,down, left and right buttons.  Unfortunately this seems to shift the overlay when I try to read a saved overlay.

DryOS problem, fixed in #599 2 day ago - get a new build.

True. You cannot disable that feature, you'd need to comment out some lines in the edgeoverlay.c. (210-226 to be exact)
That feature should be disabled or fixed in the autobuild..

both issues are fixed. the 2nd one too :) (see Changeset 599 - chdk - Trac )
the overlay now can only be moved in alt-mode, not in alt-menu or any other mode (unless i made it wrong).

btw it was PlasmaHH who wrote the major part of the "new edge overlay", i just modified it a bit and tweaked it a little bit.

edit: PlasmaHH is a very shy animal which only comes out at night and in irc only ;)
