Is all documentation current?

So. I updated to Design Extender - not thrilled about the $39.95 to update something I bought in December but I understand, you guys need cash flow too :)

I was hoping that improved documentation would accompany the new product version but this is not the case - this appears to be your weak link, company-wise...

Anyway, my problem today is, first, one of attempting to follow the instructions found in the readme.txt file for the downloads available in my account. The readme.txt for MidnightOasisSite101 bears little resemblance to the readme.txt for Artist101, for example. In the latter, we are instructed to "from the Insert menu, choose Insert > WebAssist >CSS Sculptor > Layout Manager..." but I never see "Layout Manager" there.

I WAS able get to (I think) find layouts by going to the WebAssist menu, then choosing Preset Manager and then Site Sculptor Site Designs, but when I try to Import, say Midnight Oasis, each of the .zips (and we are told to use .zip files) within the original MidnightOasis zip give me the dialog box message "The file you selected is not a valid Site Scultptor site design."

I get the feeling that as you revise, update, rename and merge your extensions you are not updating the associated docs BEFORE an update release, and ALSO I am guessing you are not cleaning up the different menu sets you have installed inside Dreamweaver (I am up to date there too at Win version CS 5.5). This would explain me not finding what your docs tell me to expect in certain menus. Or not, I could be totally wrong on this.

I am really having trouble with your product set. I am not an idiot, and I bought this to SAVE TIME. Instead, I am spending hours trying to figure this stuff out. I WANT this to work. I live in San Diego and would LOVE to be able to use and brag about a SD product. Help me do so, please!
