    How can I specify a variable (e.g. TC directory) in the Tabs specification of the TC Properties ?

    As far as I know, Take Command does not expand variables in the 'Command' and 'Directory' fields. If you use a variable in the 'Command' field, 4NT.EXE (or CMD.EXE) will expand it. If you want to use a variable for the startup directory, use a CD or CDD command in the 'Command' field.

    almost never a reason for it, and it would cause a lot of problems when
    you want to pass the %'s to the called app.)

    Take Command *does* expand variables in the toolbar button definitions,
    so if you really want it you can define a button.
