Not being a PG aficionado, I'm going to make some logical assumptions, so
don't let me lead you astray.

Unless the FB^3 PG key.FLTR file has been provided as a code Resource, you
have no need to use ResEdit for anything - unless PG registers filter files
somewhere; otherwise, it would appear that you do, but I doubt that Staz would
have done this. Makes it too difficult for us to do "exactly" what you're
trying/need to do. Isn't the key.FLTR file just another Project file that you
add when you wish to use it?

If I were you, I would take the time to make the same "customizations" to the
FB^3 key.FLTR file that you did with the FBII key.FLTR file. For one thing,
you're going to learn a lot about FB^3 and how it is different (or not) from
FBII. There is a strong probability that you're going to be able to copy/paste
much of what you have previously done. I suspect the code is almost identical.
It would also be a good idea to give it a name like myKey.FILTER so that you
can use the Standard filter OR yours OR both.

Of course YOU HAVE A COPY OF THE UNALTERED FB^3 file on your CD, so no sweat

The FB^3 key.FLTR file, in case you've had trouble finding it, is in the "PG
Produced Files" Folder in the "PG Generator" Folder.
