Here is the button in regular mode:

The button text has been "hijacked" by FDBButtons and the hotkey has disappeared from the button. The button does work to toggle between side-by-side or up-and-down dual listers. Ideas why this happens?

Note: A better alternative command is "Set DUAL=togglelayout"

Go FDBBUTTONS is designed to generate standard buttons with icons, labels and functions similar to the special ones on the right of the file display border.

If you want a single custom buttons to do something, they aren't meant for that. Instead, make a button that runs the appropriate command directly.
