Alas, I am just a user. Not half as smart as the designers making all these wondrous toys. That makes me the wrong person to ask about such things. That said, Cannibal always has an opinion.

Pretty sure it runs completely top to bottom, but if not, it is sure close. Bear in mind, it was almost 3 years ago that I got to play with a Vertex, so memory and design changes might be an issue.
I plan on getting a Vertex in the very near future. A pregnant Genuine Draft has kind of made that decision for me. Our plan is to use the fabric between (shelf) as a baby crib for the woods. Regardless, I should be able to provide some better Vertex insights in the next few months.
Cannibal. Thanks a bunch for your input. I can't wait for your detailed investigative report and your findings in the next few months. If I had a sewing machine I would try to make a very basic version since I don't need all of the bells and whistles (and weight) of the vertex. Maybe one of the fine talented folks on the forum will step up to the plate and make a prototype UL version???
Thanks again. KP
Oh yea, congratulations on the soon to arrive baby cannibal.
