Package: dasher
Version: 4.4.1-2
Severity: normal


the documentation says:

4.4. Send text to other window

 You can also have whatever is written in Dasher be directly beamed to another window.
        Enable the `send text to other window' option under the options menu. Then the window that
        you select will get Dasher's output.

However, there is no such option, and in the Preferences menus, there is no
comparable option.

Thanks for considering.

"Direct mode" is what allows sending text to another window. In the
interface, there is a button to switch this mode on/off (between the
"Paste" button and the "Preferences" button. The command line option
"--appstyle=direct" does the same.

Also the manpage is correct about this option.

It looks like this has been solved in the meantime.

Regards, Thibaut.
