Hello Guy,

Thanks -- good catch! I read Miguel's post too quickly. What does changing the last M with a number do in the string? It seems like the m --> M part is the important bit...

It is working now. The reason I used 0 is I also have my INI file set to work without a Spacebar for - (minus sign/dash) and for . (period) -- so there is no need for me to type a 0 (zero) to start a distance. Whew.

The last M is the one that calls the Moolbox.

Here is how I modified my file...

-Sets both "m" and "M" to go to the "Move" menu.
-Sets both "i" and "I" to "Identify".
-Sets both "t" and "T" to open the "Toolbox" (Macros) ...Since I no longer use templates.

Code: Select all140| npozuds,<.{\+qQ=f/xXh`~|-_wWjJkKMcregalv;:{!@#$%^&*()b{?[]'"SAyYVFit}ª
141| NPOZUDs,<>{\+qQ=f/xXH`~|-_wWjJkKmCREGaLv;:{!@#$%^&*()B{?[]'"SAyYVFIT}ª

Excellent thought. I haven't used Templates since the Symbol Browser was introduced and never thought to make this change. Of course I haven't editted the MSG file since before that so....

Made the change now!

Thanks Steve :!:
