Thanks Michal, that worked.

MESI guys… can we get the <LFN> metacommand on the list that shows when I hit the Metacommands/More popup from the Templates please?

I’d be worried that some old functionality might be affected by making the <FILE> long name by default. I think it would be best to simply add a new one on the list that is long name without having to use the two metacommands together. This way, it would be single meta like all the others and anyone who wants to migrate forward can do so under their own control.

I’d use the short file name any time I want to send a command out so that I don’t have to wrap the file name in quotes. For this, I hope that the format of <FILE> does not change.

Regards,
John
