Hi TexWorks Scripters,

First, I just appreciated how useful it is have folder derived auto -

Following on from the discussion on shortcuts / accelerators, under MS
WIndows Tw I tried the windows convention of using the & symbol in a
name to generate a keyborad shortcut while using Tw.

As anticipated, In a Script if an ampersand is included in the Title
of the Script then this will actually generate a shortcut on the
e.g.

// Title: \items &List Made From Selected Lines of Text

Also if an ambersand is included in the directory name that the script
is under, that too will display as a shortcut on the main Script menu.
e.g.

Tex&Works Specific

Is this someting that we can rely on?
