Hi everybody,

does anybody know whether I can assign hotkeys to numbers?

e.g.: use &24 hour notation

use &12 hour notation.

Thanks for your help!

Should work in Windows applications Apr 3, 2003

Hi Beatrice,



This should work for any Windows application, but might be limited by the development tool that is used to actually implement the translated strings back into the software files.

I used to work at Microsoft, where they use LocStudio for the extraction and re-implementation of localizable strings in software. However, alphabetic characters were always preferred over numbers and special characters (including accented chars).



Hope this helps.

better stick to letters Apr 4, 2003

I can confirm what Ralph says from Adobe\'s experience, too: the reason why \"normal\" letters are preferred over numbers or acented/special characters is that the latter may change to shifted characters on different keyboard layouts.

thanks Apr 4, 2003

Thanks,

I conclude that theoretically you can assign hotkeys to any un-shifted character (right?), for Italian e.g to \"à\" and \"è\", too.

Good to know in case I run short of ordinary letters....

Have a nice weekend!

be cautious about using accented characters: Apr 4, 2003

they may appear as unshifted characters on an Italian keyboard, but they may cause problems if the user has a non-Italian system/keyboard... we cannot assume that an Italian sw is going to be used only on an Italian system/keyboard: it should be fully functional on any roman system.
