Hi Andy,

I'm a little bit surprised about the features of u2 you are using. I'm missing a lot of the 
features you described in your mails. Could you have a look at your code and compare it
against the CVS? It seems there are some informations or files missing.

I cannot find this. My only menu entries are:
	- New 
	- Open
	- Open Recent
	- Save (disabled)
	- Save As (disabled)
	- Print (disabled)
	- New Window
	- Close
	- Cut (disabled)
	- Copy (disabled)
	- Paste (disabled)
	- Show Toolbar
	- Show Statusbar
	- Umbrello2 Handbook
	- What's this
	- Report bug
	- About Umbrello2
	- About KDE

With this menu entries I could not find the entry view. I look in some code fragments but I never saw
a possibility to enter this point.

I would like to help you to create a useful UI but I think you should make a first proposal,
because you are the most involved people at this time.
