I just tried Take Command, and works by far the best among all the tabbed cli frontends available. However I need a few things before I can buy this to use in my daily job.

1. Unlimited startup tabs
- 10 is simply not enough. I need to take care of more than 20 servers which I always switch between.

2. Better scroll-refresh
- I noticed that when I scroll up in a window, there's a small refresh-glitch. It's nothing serious, but just a little annoying when I need to scroll through a large log.

3. Carrige Return support in toolbar buttons.
- I can put commands i regularily use as buttons. That's very handy, but I need to manually hit [enter] to execute the command. It would be great if I could insert a CR code to make it perform a CR after the command.

Thanks :)

The current version is limited to 10 startup tabs. If you need more,
you can always start another Take Command window.

Not reproducible here (nor has anybody else ever reported something like
that). Can you give me the exact details of what you're doing and what
you see?

Already there; see "Tab Window Toolbar Configuration" and the KEYSTACK
command. For example, to execute "echo foo", put this in the command field:

"echo foo" 13

What's the idea by using tabs if I need to run several program sessions to see them? Please concider unlimit the startup tabs - They are crucial for the efficiency of my work, and I really have no point in "upgrading" from the default xp console to TC if I can't have them.

Nevermind, I can't reproduce it now eigher. If it comes up again, I'll post.

The current limit of 10 was set because nobody has ever wanted more than
that before. There's no problem in having many more tabs active, and
you could easily use the START /TAB option in your TCSTART file to
generate as many as you want at startup.

I just noticed that I'm unable to use TC's startup tabs to launch my application. That's odd, since it works perfectly in TCI 2... Why was that possebility removed?
