    1. There's no Ctrl-F1 help for variable functions (as in TCC and TCMD). The only way to get dynamic help on a variable function is to select it (the hard way, double-click won't work) and choose "Dynamic Help" from the menu or the tool bar.
    2. There's no balloon help for commands prefixed with '@' (which I hear a lot of people use).

    3. There's still musical note symbols where there are newlines in balloon tips.

    Not reproducible here (16.00.29). Do you have a specific example?

    (I thought you didn't want tooltips and had turned them off??)

    Not reproducible here. What font are you using?

    If it's the same one TCMD uses, it's Terminal Regular 9.

    I just did that and was reminded that I must turn on third-party cookies to post a suggestion. I don't like that.

    That's not the default TCMD font, nor is it a Unicode font. I would strongly recommend you switch to something like Consolas or Lucida Console.

    I like that font. It's just like raster 8x12 which I have always used in consoles, and before there were consoles, in all versions of MSDOS.

    As you like. But you're going to have endless problems with Unicode characters and non-printable ASCII characters. And forget about trying to access filenames (or cutting & pasting) using any non-English alpha characters.

    I'll live with it. Did you see the thread on TPIPE?
