Is there likely to be a revised Force Editor in a forthcoming release or can someone recommend a tool for editing OOBs outside of TOAWIV?

I'm playing with some scenario designs of my own and with 500+ units per side already scrolling up and down to move units around (also with the cut and paste issues) and creating new ones is getting painful.

Make a nice set of folders on your computer's hard drive that resembles the OOB. Then as you make the OOB in the editor you can use 'Save Unit as' and save them in a folder. You don't even have to leave them in the edtior. You can just delete them as you save them in their folders on the hard drive. And if a unit is repeated multiple times in your OOB you only have to copy and paste to your hard drive folders. Then once you have it all done to your liking you can use 'Open Unit' and plug them all into your OOB where you want them to go.

These two tools only appear when the Force Editor is open.

For instance infantry regiments are basically the same. Make one and copy and paste in into your folders on the hard drive.

Your hard drive copy of the OOB can even be indented to make putting it all together easier.
