    TCC 13.00.21 x64 Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7601]
    steps to reproduce:

    1. execute "DIR|VIEW"
    2. press alt-1
    3. press ctrl-1
    result:
    ---------------------------
    File Error
    ---------------------------
    The system cannot find the file specified.
    ---------------------------
    OK
    ---------------------------

    Click OK and the data is replaced by a large "ERROR" message.

    This is probably because v.exe tries to read the temporary (piped) file, and that file has been deleted.

    Alt-1 sets a bookmark (also Alt-0 to Alt-9)
    Ctrl-1 goes to that bookmark (also Ctrl-0 to Ctrl-9)

    I don't understand why v.exe should want to reopen the file to find a line, either :)

    Regular bookmarks function fine, even if the input is from “dir /s \”. You can even use the search function to add bookmarks (e.g., for the above example, on every occurrence of “Total For:”) without a problem. Only the numbered bookmarks exhibit the problem.

    Thanks for pointing this out. This is a bug and will be fixed in an upcoming release.

    BTW: Does VIEW actually crash or is a big ERROR displayed in the file window?

    I get a great big ERROR. The program is still responsive -- Esc closes it.

    I had it crash once after displaying the ERROR, but couldn't send the crash report for some reason (Outlook would not accept a click on Send).

    If there is a Crash-xxx.dat file in C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\V please send it to v at fileviewer.com

    Thanks,
    Charles.
