Declined command input separate for each tab

I am normally using local command history, and I perform different tasks in each tab. I tried using the command input window, but I always end up with mistakenly using commands in the wrong tab.

Suggestion: have a separate command input window for each tab (could be optional, or depending on the configuration for local command history).

The whole purpose of the command input window is to share it among all
of the tabs. If you want to restrict it to a single tab, there's not
much point in using it versus just entering everything in the tab window
itself.

I did try a test a few months ago to see if separate command input
windows for each tab window was feasible, but there are a number of
Windows architectural problems that render it difficult-to-impossible.

I thought the command input window had better editing feature: cut, copy, and paste much as in a text editor, which could be useful with very long commands, when you make a small change each time. It was the case in v9, but not any more in v10.

Nothing essential anyway.

The command input window is exactly the same in v9 & v10.

Not reproducible here; Ctrl-C, Ctrl-X, and Ctrl-V all work in the
command input window. (Which is a Windows control, not TCMD, so
something would have to be wrong with your Windows common controls.)

Anybody else able to reproduce this with v10?
