The keep log window open attempts to replicate most of the functionality of
the old ERRLVL environment variable with less confusion. So if you have the
box unchecked the window will still stay open if you have errors or
warnings. Unless you are using the built-in viewer in which case having the
box unchecked will cause the pdf to replace the log in the window even if
you have warnings.
Yeah... Writing that out reminds me exactly how confusing that is. I wish
there were a simple yet obvious way to cover all those bases.
So, if you still think the window is misbehaving, let me know exactly what
was going on and I'll try to replicate.

I'll have to give some thought to how I could do that. My skill with
interface builder is pretty minimal so if you or anyone have suggestions as
to how that kind of interface would work, let me know.
I'd also like to figure out a way for a user to add their own custom
command. See the emails with Flo for her situation.
Just some thoughts.

Glad you are enjoying it, and thanks for the ideas.
