Just another question from me...

Is it possible to tag tasks so that I can keep track of them?

Say for example:

<1> Run into wall.
<2> Run into wall.

In the box, "What a User Must Type", you can enter your task construction multiple times. Many others, including my self, put #[Enter Name of task Here] on the first entry. The # sign keeps that entry from being enterable on the runner command line. Then you can enter additional tasks underneath it to cover all the variations of your command you can think of.

Another important task item added in the latest release is the ability to drag and drop the tasks around in the list to fine tune the execution order.

So basically your saying the first command with the # is going to do is be a marker. I can use these to file the tasks for myself so i dont lose track?
