How do I highlight text and scroll so I can copy more that what's displayed on the screen? List used to support this. Previously, if you left-clicked and moved the mouse to the bottom of the window it would scroll and highlight. This no longer happens. If I try to highlight and scroll up the List display scrolls down and what you get is the content of the TCC Window before you ran the list command.

Here's what I got when I tried to scroll up while highlighting in the list window.
The output of a DIR command and the command prompt to run LIST (blue). The LIST header (red) and the LIST window content (green).

}

xmlTextWriter.WriteEndElement( );

xmlTextWriter.WriteEndDocument( );

xmlTextWriter.Flush( );

xmlTextWriter.Close( );
}
}


Is there any work-around for this short of running notepad? Is there any chance this behavior will changed? I kinda liked the way LIST used to work.

I don't recall that ever working. I just tried with 4NT v4 and it doesn't work there.

LIST in TCC has never supported this.

At least that sounds feasible. It would seem quite difficult to integrate the
Windows console drag-select-auto-scroll mechanism with something like LIST.

OK. I assumed (yeah I know) that the command window in version 11 was the same as the GUI TakeCommand Window (versions 2- 8). I'm a long-term customer. I started out with 4DOS and 4NT but abandoned them for the GUI console, TakeCommand. The GUI command window supported it and personally I miss this functionality.

Rex, please consider this an enhancement request.
