I have found that the shell statement does not work as I expect. I would like to call vlc from macro in impress without it opening a window on top of the presentation.
shell(“vlc”, windowstyle, filename, bSync)
I can’t make the windowstyle parameter in the shell statement do anything. (Nor the bSync parameter, but on this occasion it does not concern me.) Andrew Pitonyak (and documentation) says that windowstyle=6 should run the program in a minimised, unfocused window. No value of windowstyle seems to make any difference.
Any suggestions? Is this a bug?
