I have serious issues with "CommonAdjust".
I have searched all forums and sites for a reasonable explanation of what 
this can do to no avail.
I have no doubt this is the tool to use for my purpose. Can anyone elaborate 
on this or point me in the right direction for some documentation.
Jonathon, I had issues with editing the componants in the Administration 
facility, it kept changing the "[quantity-name]" to "quantity0" so the 
delete or quantity change javascript in the cart wasn't working. I am now 
downloading the componants and making changes.
I am running 4.9.8 on Redhat 8 btw
