What is the format for developing portable variables? It is unclear in the application. Thanks.
Read the help files included with the app. They explain it in detail.
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
in the process of selecting the target folders, I'm having difficulty with the portable variable button - or at least I think I am.
I've read the help file, and the applicable wording is: "The insert portable variable buttons allow you to easily add portable variables without having to type them."
However, inserting a portable variable deletes a previously inserted folder path and, similarly, inserting a folder path deletes a previously inserted portable variable. The only way I found that I can add "@drive@" to a folder path is to manually type it in the proper spot (and - likewise - the only way to put a path after @drive@ is to type it or do a cut & paste of the path from MSExplorer).
I was thinking I could insert "@drive@" into the previously inserted folder path by using the portable variable button. Have I missed something or incorrectly conceived how the portable variable button is to be used?

it's not quite supposed to be used like that, it's designed to be used to insert a portable variable that points to a location, rather than one that points to part of a location, if you see what I mean, in the next release I'll change it to insert it where the cursor is rather than overwriting the entire text.
