When I initially downloaded the net carb script, things ran just fine. Now suddenly the view of my Food page is all askew, as if the column widths are somehow messed up. The net carbs "box" instead of being part of the other other nutrient box area is now off to the far left and a huge column (with no net carb number in it) and it scrunches all my other columns to very narrow. Help please! I'm a net carb counter!

Third party add-ons like that need to be supported by the person who created it in the first place. Find the author and see if they're still supporting the script.

It'd be nice if you all would add net carbs to the app so we wouldn't have to.

MFP having a world-wide user base has to "watch" how they implement net carbs, EU users labels are already "net carbs" fiber is listed as its own item rather than as a subset of carbs
carbs
...sugar
fiber (note the lack of indent, it's its own item)
carb grams minus sugar grams = starches which don't have to be labelled

US label
carbs
....sugar
....fiber
carb grams minus sugar grams - fiber grams = the remainder is starches which still don't have to be labelled.

But simply going
carbs minus fiber is going to negatively impact those whose food labels are by "net carbs" by requirement, if it does get added it'll have to be "NA net carbs' so the EU users can keep using the foods straight from the database using their "carbs" column and the US users who want net carbs can pick the column to track.
