This is exactly the reason I've not implemented this. For every user of the control software that I'm aware, the facility for the vendor commands would become useless, not that I'd rate it as being user friendly in any case.

The upshot is that users have to write their commands in clingon (Hex to us). I'm actively looking at work rounds for this, based on a suggestion for data masking / input fields. If I get anything workable, I'll post it back here.
