Re: Preprocessing command

It's still an experimental command, but it works with AA7. It's not easy to use by the way, you need to build at runtime a text with all the details of preprocessing: https://www.astroart-forum.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=293 (the "$" is no longer required for strings) From the Preprocessing Windo...
