I'm not sure whether it would work under Pro, but there is a trick to get around the problem for you. If you create a copy of launch in your user.r script and use that, then it'll work. (Others can explain the why;) So, add a line something like this to your user.r ... my-launch: :launch and then change second.r to... my-launch %first.r and it should work. (Well, it does for me, anyway.) Hope that helps... -- Carl Read
