I did look at the time of the post, but the beta time and the post time are different due to the time zone difference so I ended up incorrectly assuming that Don's last post was essentially telling me to check for myself. No problem. :)

Thanks Don, the icon in the caption is working great for variables (beta v22.30.0211). I'm sure autocart will check his original request for aliases. :tup:

Thanks autocart for bringing this up. :appl:

Yes thank you autocart. It's a big deal for me at least for use of perms. I don't use many aliases.

Don, we shouldn't expect this to work with declared globals though, right? With variables made Global in "_Initialize" and then again under the caption, we wouldn't expected it to work since the variable wouldn't be realized as global until after the caption is read. Not a problem in any way. I wouldn't expected them to.

If I would have known that it generally would/should work with perms as well, I would have used them first.
But now that I am already using aliases in this case, I'll leave it that way for right now. Maybe later ... but then, never change a running system.

This is not in the scope of globals.

I thought that was the case. Thanks Don.
