    "Path" in the "Edit Helpers" dialog is misleading because it makes it unclear that the "Path:" text field contains a command that could have arguments. If the contents of the "Path:" text field were *really* just a path, then if one put something like "tidy -qe -utf8" in the text field, the OS would try to run a file with the name "tidy -qe -utf8" as an executable (with the spaces being treated as part of the filename!), rather than execute the file "tidy" with the arguments "-qe" and "-utf8".

    It would be better to label this text field "Command:", not "Path:".

      Never mind. I'll add this to the RFE tracker.
