I had hotkeys that were all set up in versions 15 and 16. I tried to reused them but the file appears written to be totally different. I tried coping the file over but version 17 will not use them. How do I fix the hotkeys to work the way I had them as none of the new ones are of any use to me.

Why aren't these working or how do I apply these to version 17? I also have my cap lock on all the time when I am using DCAD.

There are several syntax typos I see. Make sure to close the string with a ^ Try making these corrections and see how things go.

//Alt+C is missing it's start point. ( ideally ; or : ) As is, you would have to make sure you are in a specific menu that would start Alt+C with ^S5^S6^

Also not having comments in the file makes it a bit hard to know what you intended goal is. You can add comment lines to the file by putting // in front of the comments.
Example:
Code: Select allB^:^F4^
// Templates

What meaning do the numbers have when there are no key functions? There seem to be a lot of these. If this worked for version 15 and 16 how come it does not work for 17?

I found out what the problem was. The person that loaded version17 changed my support file location to the server. I could not understand why it was not recognizing the mcr file that I put in there in then it clicked. Once I changed it back to my "C" drive it worked. Thanks for your help.
