I do not understand why you mention /echo's switches trying to argue /echo is better than /aline.
I wasn't arguing one was better than the other, simply saying that /echo has the requested ability, so why not /aline.
... but ...
I never tried to know, but regardless I still don't know why OP cannot or refuse to use /echo
Are you saying that you can use /echo to output lines to a custom window ?. There is nothing in mirc.chm on the /echo command to suggest that, and the cutom window section of same file says use /aline etc .. and makes no mention of /echo.
If I can use /echo then problem solved
Oops I missed Raccoon's message stating that you can.
That help file, and WikiChip need a complete clean up.
What is the syntax to target a custome window just use @windowname in place of #channel name ???
