Hello everyone

I've written a new, better version of my "WFC say no" script.

Normally, when WFC alerts the user about a glossary mismatch or a QA error, the "Yes" button is selected by default, but most such warnings are false positives, so it would have made more sense to make the "No" button the default button so that the translator can simply press ENTER or spacebar to cancel the warning.

With this script, whenever such a message pops up, pressing ENTER will send "No" and pressing the NumPadAdd (the plus key on the numberpad) will send "Yes". You need AutoIt to use the script.

Samuel, why not contact Yves/LLC and suggest such features, say, for Pandora Box or ini?

Well, I already did, but even if he does add it, he'll only add it in the latest version, and we don't all use the latest version. He found it odd that there would be situations in which most QA warnings are false positives, whereas I found it odd to discover (from him) that most QA warnings are in fact NOT false positives. I suspect it depends on the language direction and the size of the glossary. But there is another reason he won't add it: it's not trivial to change the default button.
