A Dream Writer version executed from a menu does not create a .txt file.

Example: When placing Dream Writer (DW) P30415 and version in a menu, no .txt file is created in the IFS directory.

If you are able to execute a Dream Writer Versions from the Version Lists screen (98300) to create a .txt file, then a menu execution should also be able to create that .txt file in the IFS.

Due to this issue, users cannot create .txt files to their IFS Home Directory when executing a Dream Writer version from a Menu Option. Dream Writers Programs listed in the delivered UDC table 00/BE should allow you to execute from from a Menu option, creating a .txt. Please note: manually adding a missing DW Program to the UDC table 00/BE will not fix the issue of creating a .txt.
