WT 4.20

  1. Configure a Win-Test network with at least two stations
  2. Type REMOTE [Enter] in the logging window
  3. Try to enter the command NOMOVEINMYLOG or NOSCROLLMYLOG (13 characters)
  4. BUG: You can only enter the first 12-characters, then it beeps. The logging window allows up to 13-characters in a command. Can the REMOTE dialog allow the same, or would this break network packets and require a new network protocol release?

Work-around discovered:

I just noticed that if you use the context menu of the Status window (Alt-J, right click), you can enter as many characters as you like in the command text box, and it will be truncated to the first 13, so that is one way to work around this problem.
