so small example: let's say I have menu item called "Protocols" .... I will decide to use "P" as char as shortcut key. So pressing Alt + "P" pop-ups the right menu on me ... while Ctrl + "P" is used to be used as "print" shortcut in most Windows apps ... I just wonder what would Windows users do, if Alt + "P" would be linked to any of int. chars? So you say, on Amiga, you can't assign Alt + "some-char" to let's say menu-action, if some-char key is linked to any international char? ... OK, it's up to you to find some optimal solution, no problem here. Now just tell me how to underline part of face text? :-) Maybe VID could contain some kind of dialect to allow various text styles being present inside one text face? :-) Has anyone found any solution yet? (don't tell me I should use separate faces for each text style?) Will there be any solution to that in the future? Thanks, -pekr-
