Depending on the function, you can sometimes do that from the multi-line
message box. That one parses commands differently than the single line one.
I tried this function:
return the time
In the multi-line msg I get an error, because the msg box doesn't parse
"7:20 PM" properly. But if I change the function to return simply
"hello" then it works.
So, sort of a workaround. Sometimes, maybe.
