Re: Help with message boxes

A bookmark will return the cursor to the bookmark in the subject text. What I want is to resume execution where it left off. (Code, not text)
I may be able to do it another way - I already run additional programs by shelling out to them, which freezes NoteTab until control is given back. I was really just looking for a way to do it without running a separate program.

I've never used a bookmark, but I'll see if I can do something along those lines. More to learn.

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.

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.
