I posted a reply yesterday, but haven't got it back, so maybe it was
trapped somewhere.

The Edit Taskwindow is smaller than my default StrongEd  TW and would be OK
for outputting a few info lines for a running task .
One odd thing I achieved was after unsetting  the Taskwindow alias,
Strongtask %*0
then loads the Edit  taskwindow

Unfortunately. another Edit appears on the icon bar for each use, It is not
ideal to alter StrongEd defaults anyway, it would upset a simultaneous use
by another program.
