Re: [qftestJUI] Start Process: Directory - please clarify

Hello Eton,

indeed, the wording is a bit misleading.

What it means is that the directory given will become the working
directory of the new process. It does not affect the working directory
of qftestJUI and all relative file names referred to in the "Start
process" node will be resolved relative to qftestJUI's working
directory and not relative to the directroy given.

Best regards,
    Greg
