Edit, like StrongED, has a goto window under f5 allowing you to enter
the line number to go to.

The error says that there is a function in your BaseMode ModeFile that
StrongED doesn't understand, probably an old function that is no longer

Did you search for '!StrED_cfg'? It's an application so its Filer name
has a '!' prefix.

Choices$Write is not a location but a system variable that points at a
location. It's guaranteed to point at the directory that choices should
be written to on all systems that use the universal boot sequence.

To open the directory it points at do:

  *Filer_OpenDir <Choices$Write>

at the command line or in a taskwindow.

That's highly unlikely.

For now, I think it's best to copy StrED_cfg from the download archive
to the same directory as StrongED. Then start StrongED with Ctrl held
down, this forces the use of the local StrED_cfg.

Open your Choices directory (eg with above command) and see if there's
a copy of StrED_cfg. If so, navigate to:


and load the BaseMode Modefile.

Go to line 426 and let us know how it reads. Once that's known further
steps can be suggested.
