With farclip and a path and H="name" then appears an .otl would be (perhaps too :-)) nearly the same as the .dat file that's in Ntab samples folder.

Those above from near the very bottom of ClipHelp.clh
Whose work is that? I assumed it to be Eric's. The caret or circonflex or whatever it's called (^) is inserted first by itself then control returns to parent clip in order to insert further text (as opposed to farclip to a round dot clip for/to obtain and insert the further text).
Might've been made at earlier version of Ntab prior to development/addition of insertcode commands.

However, I tried it begin line with either a . or a space does work such as
.^!ToolBar Join Lines
After code inserted from storage clip into doc, is there a trim or something that would remove a leading space?

I'm not trying to sway you or anyone in any certain direction. But others have observed and mentioned to me that I like to remain open to possibilities.
