A Comprehensive System of Responses to 1NT

System on after balancing 2NT
We play 3 is Puppet when x is minor, and an OM length ask x is a major. 3, 3 and 3 are transfers into the 3 non-x suits.
Jump Cue Bid after Negative Double
I wasn't thinking you have a visualization role in this. Partner is going to bid some number of after hearing your response. If you have some kind of unexpected Dbl without length on this auction, well, those are the breaks.
