Thread: A4 letter menu options to A5

    Default A4 letter menu options to A5

    I've made the switch to A5 with my inventory- now with pictures- very nice. Most of my other databases are still in A4. I miss the single letter commands V or B in A5 and wonder why I can't use F10 to save instead of F9. I know there must be a way to make the V for view, and B for browse active when in modal mode, but I've not stumbled onto it. I'm obviously one of those guys that was originally tempted by the database for non-programmers lable, and find myself wondering why they abandoned such a simply eleant and intuitive interface, or left no obvious conversion crutches around to help us brave folks with the transition. Is there a book, patch, or option that I've missed- or am I just too set in my ways?

    Perhaps Mr. Gates can help you with the explanation of why Windows is so much different than DOS.

    In the meantime, use the & character in front of the letter of the label that you want to make a hotkey of. Then use the control button and that letter. Look at the shorcuts in the help file so you don't conflict with an existing hotkey and change that behavior.

    As a side note, I gave one of my daughters the serenity prayer on a coin.

    God give me the serenity to accept the things I can't change, the courage to change the things that I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
