extract_data extension

I am just catching up and updating, and have several questions regarding installing the extract_data extension / Stuart Beesley. I am a competent computer user, but not competent "in the weeds". Python is still a snake to me :-) . Hence these questions.

I have Toolbox installed in MD, and know how to run it. Stuart posted in February that extract_data now replaces all Python scripts and extensions. Does that include Toolbox? If Yes, do I merely delete Toolbox from the MD Extension menu?

I don't see extract_data extension listed in my MD menu. So must I download it and import the .mxt file from https://yogi1967.github.io/MoneydancePythonScripts/?
And it will then be recognized as a MD Extension?

Do I need to delete the .mxt file after "importing" it? Where is it in MD?

I do see that I must update to MD >3056 before doing this.

Thank you.

MD 2021.1 3034
Mac OS 10.13.6

    Ideally install MD preview build 3065 first.

    Download the signed versions of extract_data and toolbox from here


    Drag the .mxt files to the left moneydance sidebar to install.

    No, extract_data and toolbox are separate beasts.

    Let me know if you have problems?

    Once you install the mxt(s) then they will appear on the extensions menu.

    No need to delete anything afterwards.

    FYI. All my extensions are now available inside MD from the manage extensions menu.
