V10 "Configure tab toolbar" issues

In the toolbar I have defined batch files and launching applications to the current window.

1. It doesn't actually launch anything just stuffs the custom commandline into the current window. (I want it to fully execute the app so it's not hitting the "enter" for me as ver 8 did)

2. When using the "configure tab toolbar" to launch applications in directories with spaces using the program to point to the app... It puts the quotes in correctly but when I push that custom button - the quotes aren't stuffed into the cutrrent tab window.

Thanks,

When you're sending something to the current tab, it acts like KEYSTACK
-- so you're going to need to add an ENTER at the end on the command
line. See the help for more info.

In the KEYSTACK format, quotes indicate a character string, not an
enclosed filename. If you want to send double quotes, you need to
double them up. See the KEYSTACK command in the help for the syntax.

Jim - ok I understand: But a better way would be to put an option in the UI to send the CR like v8 did.

Jim - The if I use the TC10 UI to point to the exe I want to run it should do this correctly.

But the Browse button doesn't know if you're going to want to send keys
to the current tab, change folders, or start a new tab. In the latter
two cases, you definitely do *not* want the extra quotes.
