[plt-scheme] MrEd Designer bugs and feature request

	Try changing your language level to Pretty Big.  If you have 
compiled the program (by running compile.scm) then it will need to have 
that language level; Graphical is not enough.  I assume also you are 
running PLT version 301?  (301 was the whole reason for changing the 
package in the first place.)

> Dear Peter Ivanyi,
> 1st bug:
> While trying to change a frame`s properties I`ve got the following errors:
> 1. reference to undefined identifier: read-from-string
> 2. reference to undefined identifier: pretty-print
> It seems like you haven`t include the string.ss module where it should be.
> 2nd bug:
> I can`t change my frame`s label. The right behaviour should be this: when I 
> type in the frame`s label or some text parameter I should see it changing on 
> the actual frame (like it is done in Borland`s C++ and Delphi IDEs).
> 3d bug
> I haven`t managed with creating a Scheme code. The file has null size.
> Feature requests:
> 1. when I doubleclick on the Frame in the Hierarchy Window the frame must 
> appear and be visible/editable.
> 2. every button in the editor must have a tooltip with a short description
> 3. all the text fields in the properties editor must be horizontally 
> scrollable
> 4. boolean values and enums should appear as drop-down lists
> 5. it would be nice if MrEd Designer has the ability to show every change in 
> the source code for the project immediately
> 6. every action I can`t take for the element should be forbidden by the 
> interface rather than by error message boxes.
