How to install Cluster Folk

First, create an empty shape layer to serve as your settings layer (bonus points for naming it!) and apply 'Cluster Folk - Settings' to it. Then create another empty shape layer, name it 'Box 1', and apply 'Cluster Folk - Box' to it. In its Effect Controls, point it to the settings layer. Then duplicate the box layer as much as you like, and change settings in your settings layer. If you want a custom order, that can be set in each box's Effect Controls
