Re: Help with message boxes

Hi John,

Please excuse me if this is too simpleminded. Why not set a "bookmark" at
the point where the user stops to review his/her work. When they resume,
your editor would search for the bookmark, remove it, and allow the user to
continue from there.

Any ideas?
You could do the review in *another* editor and pause execution until that
is closed. Something along the the lines of:

^!ShellWait pdflatex ^$GetFileName(^%vFIL%)$
^!Delay 5
^!Shell F:\Winutil\acrobat\Reader\AcroRd32.exe ^%vdst%

(Unmodified from a clip doing something entirely different, but shows the
principle. The pdflatex run can take quite some time. The delay is to
ensure all disk caches are flushed.)

That could also mean they 'tweaked'
something, and want that in the continuation.
This could prove to be difficult. It's safer to reload and start over. But
you know your own clips best, perhaps it can be done safely.
