I would like to suggest that script1, script2 and responses all have a right click menus so we could use copy and paste.

Thanks
Sandy

Hi Sandy,

I wanted to have them but unlike textboxes or editbox controls the richedit control does not include the right-click menu as default...

What you can do is : Edit Response, Script1 and Script2 lists in Notepad. You can save them as a text file (.txt) from the relevant editors and then edit them in your favourite text editor and then Load them back into the Response Editor and "Accept" the revisions into your database...
That way you have access to all the text editing options provided by your text editor (search, cut, paste etc)

The following key combinations are however useful for editing text in the coding Editors:

CTRL+A = select all text

CTRL+C = copy highlighted text

CTRL+V = paste text at cursor position

CTRL+X = cut highlighted text

You can also highlight text and DRAG it with mouse button to a new position in the text; then release mouse button to insert it.

Also to move within the coding editors you can use:

CTRL+PgUp - Goto start of currently viewable text
CTRL+PgDn - Goto end of currently viewable text

CTRL+Home - Goto Start of entire text
CTRL+End - Goto End of entire text

PgUp - Normal page scroll
PgDown - Normal page scroll

Home - Goto beginning of current cursor line
End - Goto end of current cursor line


Regards,
catventure

I must admit I have to stop myself right clicking like a Windows nut.
What I suggest when TAB is used by 20 million plus users ,Phil brings out a TAB Mouse. You can get to all the TAB menus by the mouse scroll bar. The mouse comes with a CAT winking at you mouse mat.

Jason I love you
