Running a process in a separate Screen (F12)

Post by zippy1981 »


I'd like to be able to run a program and have it run in a screen in farmanger so I can switch to it by pressing F12 like the internal view and editor commands. Is that possible? I'd also like similar behavior for the external editor.

In my particular case the commands I want to do this with most are vim and sqlcmd.

No, this is not possible. But you can run FAR in some kind of console manager (e.g. ConEmu) and start your external programs in a new console tab.
