      This is what I came up with. I think it works like it should, but I don't think that this is the way the author of Lesson 1 meant for it to be written.

      ^!Toolbar New Document
      ^?[Enter name=Arial|_Times New Roman|Verdana]
      ^?{Enter name==Italic|No Italics}
      ^!Shell "^**"
      ^!Wait
      ^!Toolbar New Document
      ^?{Enter name=How to launch an external program? ^!command will do it. ^!ShellWait is another way to launch a program, but the clip stops executing until the launched program ends. If you use ^!command, you need a second command, ^!Wait, to hold up execution until the launched program is finished. It depends on what you are trying to accomplish in your clip. In this case, it seems to be just a matter of "because it says so." :) If the clip is waiting for Notepad to close, obviously it cannot be the one that is going to close it. For opening a file in an external program, most programs will open a named file that is on the command line. Since you are passing the command line from a clip, you can use ^** to use NoteTab's in-progress document.
      On my computer, the Fonts folder is within my Windows directory.}
      ^!ShellWait "^**"

      Hi Ed,

      There is a slightly later version available, 4.95, you could install. Always best to be working with the latest version.

      The focused temporary document is the current document in NoteTab when it has some unsaved info in it. Using clips it is possible to launch external programs and use the contents of this unsaved "file" by using the special filename "^**"

      How to launch an external program? ^!command will do it. ^!ShellWait is another way to launch a program, but the clip stops executing until the launched program ends. If you use ^!command, you need a second command, ^!Wait, to hold up execution until the launched program is finished. It depends on what you are trying to accomplish in your clip. In this case, it seems to be just a matter of "because it says so." :) If the clip is waiting for Notepad to close, obviously it cannot be the one that is going to close it. For opening a file in an external program, most programs will open a named file that is on the command line. Since you are passing the command line from a clip, you can use ^** to use NoteTab's in-progress document.

      On my computer, the Fonts folder is within my Windows directory.

      Good luck,
      Sheri
