It doesn't work, and I can't see how it could be made to work. What
that button does is to drag the current file to AppBasic's iconbar
icon. AppBasic is then supposed to open its main window with the
application being set to the application the current file belongs to.
Dragging the file directly from the Filer to AppBasic doesn't do
anything either.

Unfortunately the tools inside the Appbasic mode are compressed and
Joe Taylor can't be contacted so there's no easy way to get this fixed.

You need to create a directory called 'StrongED' in !AppBasic.Resources
and inside that a directory called 'Menus'. I see that I also have
directories called 'Functions' and 'Procs' in there, don't know if
they're required.

The modes database has already been updated and most modes have had work
done to them, mostly minor. Some of the modes now require 4.69a6, to
avoid confusion all modes are said to need 4.69a6 (even if some don't).
The 4.68 release has been changed, it now has all modes included.
