Thank you very much! I am happy that you contacted us so you could discover all the features and fix the initial troubles.
That shows how much important support is in an extension and that is why we take it very seriously!
We will also try to make the component more intuitive from the start. Please remember we have a full functional demo site.
Due to a problem of my server was not able to run the component, and this is where I have to congratulate the developers. They helped me and guided me with all the patience in the world until I got to fix the problems. 10 points for you.
Thank you for your kind words! Glad that our support is up to your expectation!
