Hi Everybody!

I searched the help files that come with the download, the online-help-files and the forum right here, but it seems that you guys have another information-source that I am not aware of. My question:

Which $-macros (or however you want to call it - I mean $(FileDir) and the like) are available for the "Argument"-field of the "User Tools"-configuration?
I have read in the context of the help files and the forum already:

$(FileDir), $(FileName), $(FileTitle), $(UserInput)

But are there any more? Plus I am not sure what the difference is between FileName and FileTitle. UserInput I can only guess, but it is not even mentioned in the context of the help-file. Please help ... a list of all available keywords w/ description of each meaning would be nice  Grin

Thanks, Stephan

Dear Stephan,
>Plus I am not sure what the difference is between FileName and FileTitle
FileName is full file name with extension. FileTitle is name without extension.

>UserInput I can only guess,
When u use UserInput , when tool is run, U  get a box to type in to or paste in to a string. As example suppose u want to use grep.exe to find and see all the instances of "string" in a file.extension.
your command will be grep.exe
and u will pass the arguments -i -n "$(UserInput)" $(FileName).
When u run this u will get a box in which u type/paste your string "word1 word2 word3..." which will pass as argument to your grep command.

Hope it helps,
