Missing information about firstmnu setting in the Help file

Post by *misvin » 2017-11-19, 12:42 UTC

The firstmnu setting isn't described in the Help file.

Please see the page "Settings in the file wincmd.ini (Part 1)" => Section [Configuration].

BTW: Why does TC use the firstmnu key if there is another key "Test="?
TC Help File wrote:Test=______This key is used internally to check whether the ini file is writable. If not, an error message will be shown.

They are used by different parts of TC which need to check writability. Only when Test= write fails, an error will be shown (e.g. when the user tries to apply the settings in the main settings dialog).
