Does Transit have a keyboard shortcut for the concordance search, or at least the means of defining one?

Version: Transit XV Smart SP 26.

Thank you.

Use one of those 2 key sequences, or create a macro Mar 14, 2010

Hi Rob,

There is no direct short cut, so after highlighting the required text, you can use one of the following key sequence:
A - right click key (in your keyboard, on the right side between the Ctrl and window keys),
- the up arrow twice,
- "Enter"

B- Alt+O then O (calls the relevant function from the Options menu)


By using this key sequence few times, you'll get used to it and will be using it blind

The other possibility is to create a macro (Menu Options > Record Macro), which does the same steps, of one of the 2 sequences mentioned above.


Hopefully, they will cover your purpose and help you

Your Arabic Translation Team

Create a macro Apr 8, 2010

You can use the macro function (Tools menu) to define your own shortcuts.

"Macro" menu item greyed out Apr 9, 2010

Thank you ATT and Geneviève,

I'd like to define a macro, but in the Options menu the items "Record Macro ..." and "Macro ..." are both greyed out.

Any tips for me?

You need Professional version to create macros Apr 9, 2010

However, there is a workaround - if you tweak your profile file, you can still add macros manually even in Smart version, but you need to know the syntax.

Syntax? Apr 9, 2010

Thank you Antonin ...

... but unfortunately I don't know the syntax!

However, before I do anything drastic, I am getting on very well with the keyboard tips mentioned by ATT (see above).

Here are my old macros from xv Apr 9, 2010

If you insert this section at the and of your .prf file, these six macros should become availabale in your Transit XV and you can play with it a bit and see what it is about. I show it as a picture to be sure all symbols are preserved.

You have six macros here - you can see for each them its name, its shortcut and then the "code"

Thanks for the macros Antonin Apr 20, 2010

... but I was not able to adapt them to my particular problem.

However, as I mentioned, I am getting on very well with the keyboard alternatives suggested by ATT.

But thanks for going to the trouble!

Yours

Hi Antonin,

What is the use of your Bind Prepositions macro?

Thanks,

Hans
