I work i the GUI. I save the results to files using the transporter to
backup and share with other images. Usually I start in the evaluator
shell in the GUI. I create an empty object and start adding slots and
methods from there.

File in with:

  bootstrap read: 'myFile.self' From: 'mydirectory'.

File out by using the transporter tool.

Not that I'm aware of.

I like the zillion little windows with connectors all over the place!
You can manage these by collapsing the objects and scrolling around
the infinite world.
