Keyboard Shortcuts in the Options Dialog

Keyboard Shortcuts in the Options Dialog

The Options dialog (Tools > Options) supports keyboard shortcuts. Here are a few:

  • Alt+O jumps from the option tree to the option panel on the right.
  • F4 toggles combo boxes up/down, enables text boxes, and displays color and directory pickers.
  • Alt+Left and Alt+Right navigate backward/forward between previously viewed option panels.
  • Enter saves any changes and closes the dialog.

See "Options dialog shortcuts" in the Help > Index for more shortcuts and information.

How do I jump from the search box in the options dialog box to the trees.. this would help a lot.. as I hate to move my hand towards my mouse to select what I just found.

If you're keen, put this in a macro file and load it - function key F2 then gets you from the search box to the tree.  It seems to work but don't blame me if it crashes one day...

Code: [Select]
#include "slick.sh"

defeventtab _options_tree_form;

void _options_tree_form.f2()
{
   int treeWid = _find_control('_ctl_tree');
   if (treeWid) {
      treeWid._set_focus();
   }
}
