[Solved] extention not enabled

First off I want to say this extention looks incredibly useful. Much thanks to irock and justin. Unfortunatly, I can't seem to get it to works.

So, I followed to following instructions
"Step 1

Move the "dialog" folder into "[Your Stencyl 3 Install Directory]/plaf/haxe/extensions".

Step 2

Import "Dialog Extension Sample.stencyl" into Stencyl."

I open the sample project up and take a quick look at the dialog extention tab in the dash board and there is a message that says "Dialog extention is not enabled"

Seems like an easy fix- I go to the extentions> extention manager... but the extention is already enabled.

Not sure what to do at this point.  :( I reaaally want this extention work. All help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You need to enable the engine extension. The toolset one is already enabled.

"Settings" (in the toolbar), "Extensions", and then enable it from there.

I went to "settings">"extensions", however only the default engine extentions are there

Oh, perhaps the "dialog" folder you moved to "[Your Stencyl 3 Install Directory]/plaf/haxe/extensions" was a higher-level folder. The folder you move in there should have a couple src folders and files at the top level, so if it looks like "extensions/dialog/dialog/[src files]", you have an extra folder in there. It should be "extensions/dialog/[src files]"

I can't believe it was that simple -.-

I wondered about why the darn extension wouldn't show up in my settings for the better part of the last few days.
Thanks for straightening this up in the forum, although you might wanna tweak the .zip file to only contain one level of "dialog" - might prevent further confusion.

I haven't donated anything yet to your cause but I just might reconsider this, once I have actually gotten around to using the extension.
I seriously love you guys for doing this and hope that your work won't go unnoticed.

Keep up the great work!

Absolutely. Sorry for the trouble! Having multiple levels of dialog folders must have been my accident.

Thank you!

I'm new to stencyl and was trying out some things, was having trouble with your extension until i found this page thanks so much for the help! Works famously! Thanks even more for the extension, hopefully maybe you can update the install file to not include too many directories? Or maybe this step of moving the directories can be appended to the readme.txt in any way? Just a suggestion, will be donating soon when i get paid. THANKS AGAIN!

Yeah, absolutely. This somehow seems to keep slipping my mind. I'll get to it this evening. Thanks for sticking with it. :)

I've updated the download to not have multiple levels of the dialog folder.

I feel like a jerk- I just realized I forgot to thank you- I guess I had other things on my mind- So, yeah, thanks for the help!
