YAR - arrow navigation of 5x5 popup

Post by TaineGilliam » Fri Oct 02, 2009 6:24 pm

I'd like to bring up again what I see as a great idea - allow the arrow/page/up-down keys to navigate the 5x5 popup. It would be very nice if these keys could cycle thru the families and pages of the 5x5 popup.

I see Left/Right and %up/%down changing families. And Up/Down and Pgup/Pgdn changing pages.

A key to toggle the "pin" (I suggest [.]) would be handy in this case, too.

These keys are based on keys available on all hardware AND the OLE easily. Also remembering S1-S12 and A-Z are used by the popups.

This would give you something like - [Tool] [S4-FOH VL3K] [S4-FOH VL3K] [Change Family] [S1-DSL] [Change Family] [S3-Red] - very easily on the Palette or the OLE.

The tricky question is would the software be smart enough to cycle the correct number of families based on the hardware present - most of the time four but on the VL five?
