      It normally works pretty good, just kind of flashy. ;) The View
      menu is a bit trickier. Delays are needed because of the Clipbar
      menu. Eric is real good about not changing the shortcuts also.

      I did and after reading it and getting confused, I closed it for
      later, or is that Larry. ;)

      ^!SetIniFile FileName

      It gets tricky when other ini files are involved. You need to
      get the current ini and save it in a variable then restore it
      after you do what you have to do. I've run into it a number of
      times with Clipbar Clips.

      Yes, or just make ^$GetLibraryName$ do that. If you are the one
      running the Clip you ought to know what Library it is in already.

      Happy Clip'n!
