      Ok, thanks, I got it to work. This is my command:

      ^!FarClip "F:\NoteTabMisc\Clips\MyOtherClips:TRS Diff"

      The library is actually named MyOtherClips.clb

      Now, how do I get it to be listed in the Clip Tool?

      I can't speak to your network problem but, You have the wrong syntax for
      the ^!FarClip command.

      You provided the path for the clip library but omitted the name of the
      individual clip to run.

      With the single 'colon' in the line ^!FarClip is looking for F.clb and
      if it happened to exist it would then try to run a clip named

      The following is from NoteTab help.

      ^!FarClip LibraryName:ClipName
      ^!FarClip "LibraryName:ClipName" [Text]

      LibraryName name must be stored in the Libraries folder if you do not
      specify a path, but does not need to have the .clb extension (you can
      use a different extension if you do not want the library to be listed in
      the Clipbook tool or the button bar).

      This is the line from your post;

      > ^!FarClip F:\NoteTabMisc\Clips\diff.clb

      In fact it should be similar to the following;

      - ^!FarClip "F:\NoteTabMisc\Clips\diff:clipnametorun"

      I omitted the .clb since it is the default as the help paragraph above says.
