I have made toolbar buttons for a couple of smart arrows. But I want them to be filled and I haven't figured out how to use the extended code. Could someone enlighten me? Am I supposed to put the ö in there somehow with the 0246? I tried it behind the

Here is the line I have for a dot arrow: A02=^1054#^173#^F9^F5^S0^F0^F4^S0^S3^F3^ I can't remember what the 173# does there. But it doesn't work without it.

Try this code.
Code: Select all^1054#^ö^173#^F9^F5^S0^F0^F4^S0^S3^F3^

The ö is the discrete code/symbol you want to use to toggle on the filled arrow heads. You can copy it from the Extended Character Code Page or manually type it in Alt+0264 (hold down the ALT key and type 0264 and release ALT). I usually try to put discreet codes in first in my toolbar codes as shown above that way I know won't possibly be changing some F# position that I might be expecting later in my code. I am not sure what 173# does either but it seems to get you to the arrow menu. I would probably use the code below which gets you to the arrow menu via the main Edit menu. just in case 173# might have some old legacy tied to it. Maybe that's why it's description is missing on the Extended code page? Durp, see Roger found it below ;)
Code: Select all^1054#^ö^;^S6^S2^F9^F5^S0^F0^F4^S0^S3^F3^

Function # ... mbers.html
173 2D Edit, Text, Arrows

You'll enter the 0246 with Hold down Alt and 0246 on the numkeys ö to get the code.

I tried this as a command alias, seems to work.
