"L" (LIST) not working in TCC's examples.btm

Start screen shows "0. LIST this batch file" but pressing 0 just makes TC's screen blink once. Same if I press 0 on the numpad.

The batch file says "Use the "L" (LIST) option from most screens to view a specific source section."

Any screen I tried which shows "Press "L" to LIST this section, any other key to return to the menu" simply returns to the main menu if I press uppercase or lowercase L.

This is latest TC/TCC on Windows 7 SP1 (English) with a US keyboard layout.

Every other example or key (at least the ones I tried) seem to work.

Is there still an examples.btm? I thought Rex stopped shipping that one or two major versions back.... Possibly you may be looking at a leftover from an older version.

Is Take Command installed in a directory with a space in its name? The fix may be to do a search-and-replace for %_BATCHNAME and change all occurrences to "%_BATCHNAME" in double quotes.

I was not aware it is - for whatever reasons - obsolete...
