I have problems with running custom commands in terminator layouts, they seem to "hang", maybe I am misunderstanding the concept of custom commands here.

If I run something like python manage.py runserver it seems to work fine. But if I run echo 'Hallo' as custom command it will be executed, but then it "hangs" and I dont get a new command line and cannot run any more commands in the window. I can't even stop it with strg+c, thats also for the runserver command.

I thought, running a custom command will be the same like opening terminator, typing executing the command and then having a normal working command line

ok I just found out :) I just need to add ; bash after the custom command, should be worth mentioning that in the menu...
