    Can anyone tell me if there is a section of the TCC v.9 help file
    where I can find a comprehensive list of .ini file directives?

    I can't seem to find anything like that.

    Thanks

    Back in May, Rex said

    "All .INI directives are in OPTION except for the debugging and the
    key remapping directives."

    He discourages using the .INI file directly, I believe.

    P.S. The reason I'm asking is I would like to experiment with changing
    OPTION directives temporarily at the command line, using something
    like

    option //directive=value

    so that the new settings will take effect immediately, and will be in
    effect for the current session only.

    I was wondering if there was a comprehensive list and explanation of
    directives in some single location.

    Not anymore. As Jim Cook explained, Rex "deprecates" the changing of any
    options in any manner other than using the option dialog. His explanation is
    that incorrect settings made manually resulted in a huge number of support
    requests (i.e., telephone calls or emails to the support hotline by
    customers with support contracts) which dropped very significantly by
    dropping the list from the help files. The latest published list is in
    version 8's help file, jphelp.chm.

    I personally use the dynamic option changes in several batch programs, and
    have aliases for a few, such as controlling the dynamic title updates (one
    to enable and another to disable). Being a "control freak", I prefer to do
    things strictly under my control, and not delegate the job to a program, but
    I am in the minority.

    Seems like a step back to me. Good for Rex, not so good for the
    customers who buy the product because they want the detailed control
    that it offers.

    Now this really angers me!!!

    Have just upgraded, and wasted hours searching for the list of directives! Like others, I strongly believe that this control belongs in the hands of the users!

    There is, I know, nothing that I can do about it. Just letting my frustration be known!!!
