Sorry Seth, I should have responded as soon as I tried it out just
before midnight my time last night.

It certainly fulfils a need and it's a most welcome addition to the
arsenal of Conversant administration tools.

PM worked well for me and was easy to use. I wasn't quite sure what
impact using a subset of the "patterns" would be so I basically
extracted everything - barring a few 'deselects' to see how that would
work. PM generated a 144KB file so I guess I will need to be more
selective in future ;-).

There were a few glitches I noticed in Safari (v1.3) under Mac OS X
10.3.9. For instance the 'Check All' checkbox was highlighted by default
but the items weren't. If I did an 'Uncheck All' then the tick remained
in the 'Check All' checkbox regardless.

It was also counter-intuitive (to me at least!) that if you selected a
folder item the folder's sub-items remained deselected and that an
'invert' checkbox tick was required to override this. It's difficult to
explain textually but I hope you get my gist.

Looking at the configFile.xml file (which I wasn't prompted to name
incidentally) I noted 'blank' entries, for instance:
<property name="javascript" type="TEXT">

</property>
I guess there's no harm in these...

I can see the need and advantage of this approach to the export/import
the 'pattern' of a site and look forward to the import wizard.

Thanks,

Duncan
