I tried running the "vdosplus set" command from Windows. The same anomaly previously reported -- the displayed text turned from black to white italics -- occurred. I did note other issues related to xpl execution or keyboard macros with vdos sessions initiated with the set command, but didn't explore at the time....
In any event, not really an impediment....

You meant that you commanded "vDosPlus /set ..." inside an existing vDosPlus window? I am not quite sure why you want to do this. The "/set" option is for initializing the settings when you launch vDosPlus from Windows, and if vDosPlus is already running you can change the setting of the current vDosPlus session using the SETCFG command (rather than using "vDosPlus /set ..."). Hope this helps.
When the "set" command is executed, another vdos window opens -- and it's in that window where the change initiated by the set command takes effect. So now there are two versions of vdos running.
I assume this is normal behavior(?) Thanks.
May I ask what is the "new vdos(plus?) window" you are referring to? Thanks.
The vdosplus "set" command, for example
Vdosplus /set LPT1 = "PDFtoPrinter.exe" #LPT1.PDF
Vdosplus /set font = consola
leads to a variety of odd xy3 behaviors in the new vdos window which the command opens.
The example in front of me is a simple xy3 macro which loads an HP printer driver. Perform it in the primary vdos window and it works as expected. Invoke it in the window loaded after the "set" command above, and it turns normally displayed black text into white italic text.
Not a pressing matter, but anyone else?
