I actually am:
It's a new thread to please those who want new threads,
and it uses "Re: .." as the subject for those who want to see what
I'm replying to.
Howzthat?

Yes if you really desperately want to run multiple instances.
In reality, what you probably want is multiple top-level windows,
but one and the same BOY/CSS instance.
Like EDM, where all your windows are typically executed by one and the same
EDM instance.

So for multiple instances:
Run CSS with different workspaces.
(Some versions allow you to actually use the same workspace,
they don't "lock" the workspace, but then don't complain if
you get strange results because multiple instances clobber
the same workspace files).

For opening multiple top-level windows from the same instance:
Use menu Window/New Window,
or use the context menu of BOY buttons that open related displays
to open the related display in a new window.


Thanks,
Kay
