How do you tell the Propeller Tool which COM PORT you want to use?

The Basic Stamp Editor IDENTIFY shows all the Basic Stamps that are available. And, the PORT DIRECTIVE tells the Stamp Editor which one you want to program.

On my computer, the Propeller Tool IDENTIFY seems to just see one of my Propellers, and I don't see a PORT DIRECTIVE in the Propeller Manual.· The only way I have been able to select which·Propeller I want to program is:· turn off the Propeller that the IDENTIFY found, and then the IDENTIFY finds the other Propeller.

I asked Jeff the designer of the Propeller Tool about this, it wasn't included originally because of time constraints. You are the first to ask for this capability. Now that it has been requested, it may get a higher priority on a future release. (The next version is past the point in the development cycle for new features to be included, but it will be considered for a future version).
