In the command bar, i can type show text comparison in new window and it opens Text Comparison in a floating window. But when i drag the command (from the dropdown list) to the shortcut bar, and then click on it, it opens a window in my Main L4 window (not a floating window).

Wish i could get the shortcut to follow the full command (e.g. in a floating window)

BTW: yes i can right click on the shortcut and it offers a floating window option. But is this really a shortcut when it takes several clicks to do this?

This is more a suggestion and not complaining.

This would be a bug if show text comparison in new window was a command it recognized in the drop down list. However since you can open resources in new windows you should be able to open anything in new windows. Thanks for the suggestion.

Edit: I must have typed something wrong on second try it recognizes the command, but the shortcut does not retain that property, so this is definitely a bug.

Thanks George

So anything that is accepted as a command should be able to be made into a shortcut. That sounds logical.

EDIT: added this to the bug list in the wiki.

Those of you with 4.0b beta, has this been fixed?

This has not been fixed in the 4.0b Beta, and remains an open case.

Thanks Melissa

Sad was hoping that it would be, but since it is still an open case, i am still hoping.
