George: Since there is no RECALL CONFIGS and FilePath i use following PFK's and Macro which Enter S in FM Shortcuts . PFK and Macro could be executed in FM and Edit . ( Used it already before Macro could be executed in FM ) If RC or SWAP support all available shortcuts you can remove the FM shortcuts . Thanks
Elseif Get_Arg_Count > 1 and Ucase$(Get_Arg$(1)) = "PODO" then
if mid$(Get_Arg$(2),1,1) = "(" then
SPF_Post_Do(Get_Arg$(2)) ' V11 allows now to execute Macro in FM no cmd is needed
Re FM Shortcuts- no, don't use them. I never even noticed that a 'keyboard option' was there - mouse only access for me.
PFKSHOW - no, never used that. I find that the defaults keys are what they always were in ISPF and thus imprinted on my brain. I have extended most of them with additional facilities and thus can remember all those. And if I use something so rarely that I know there's a key for it but I can't remember which one it is, then I don't need a key for it!
Now I have "FOMO" - Fear Of Missing Out! So I searched.
Turns out there is no PFSHOW command in v2.4beta. It has been replaced by 'Keyboard Help Lines' in OPTIONS SCREEN.
The v 2.4 HELP DOC says "...like the PFSHOW command in prior versions of SPFLite".
George if this is an April 1st joke, I fell for it!
By the way - the PDF version of the HELP documentation is really useful for this, because you can search the whole document 'as one' using CTRL-F to find things.
I don't longer use PFSHOW lines . I prefer to us the KEYLIST output which i format with my DO MKEY File to have the key-label in a separate column to be more readable . Would be nice if KEYS LIST would do it . thanks
The File manager has a row of shortcuts at the top:
_ New _ FilePath _ Recent _ Found _ Opened _ Favorites _ Flists _ Paths _ Configs
With the easy addition of 'user-defined' FLISTS to the above row, I sometimes find it hard to tell which list I'm using. I know FM display the list name next to "File List Name >" , but that's in 'lo-brightness' and thus harder to spot.
How hard would it be to 'highlite' the entry that is currently being used?
A good approach, which would also give the user some control over this, might be to display the 'active' setting using the OPTIONS-SCREEN-BG2 colour for 'FM Tool Bar".
