Just wondering, i've added in .timer -m 1 1 editbox -f to my treeview switchbar for when i switch windows, but is there a way to focus the editbox without losing the text in it? it disappears if i write something, swap channels and come back to it.

Iím not sure, but try this, from help:
Quote:
$editbox(window,N)
Returns the text in the editbox of the specified window.
If N = 1, returns the text in the second editbox in a channel window, if it's open.


So before whatever erases the editbox do this:
var %editing = $editbox(window,N)
and when you return to the window:
editbox -f %editing
