Yes, its so unpredictable - you just have to keep remembering to save more
I'll try and make time and look more into it.
Stefan, if you get time would you mind please checking the top part
(reference section) on the TW.system command (
http://twscript.paulanorman.com/docs/html/TexWorksQtScripting.htm ) I've not
done the examples yet, and just wanted to check thus far, if you
didn't mind please.
I realise that in the below it should be TW.app.system(...)
"This move requires any existing scripts that used TW.system(...) to be
redrafted to meet the new requirements."
