Hi Mouser,

I *hope* this proves to be a helpful post... I've reinstalled F&RR (1.07.17 ) after a considerable period of running without it (I run ActiveWords). I am finding that when I try to use ALT-Spacebar to launch the main window, the main window will flash onto my screen and then (apparently) close. I've found that I need to keep holding down the ALT key while clicking on the menu bar of the main window in order to get it to remain in focus. I've also found that, at times, the main window is available in the background (but is not indicated as such via ALT-Tab) and that if I go to my desktop it will be there. Odd.

I am running XP Pro Sp-2 on a Centrino notebook (first generation) with a gig of RAM.

Thanks for a fantastic app!

Mike

does it work fine if you configure a different hotkey?

alt+spacebar is a bit of a strange key and has some issues.  try also this with alt+spacebar: go to the Interface tab and choose one of the Focus Preservation options other than "Ignore", see if that helps.

ok just saw your post about break key - so then it definitely is the strangeness of alt+space.
alt+space works here for me, try the focus preservation thing - if that fixes it for you then i will look into a different fix.

Hi Mouser,

Just tried your suggestion re: focus preservation and wasn't able to alter ALT-Spacebar's behaviour...

OK just tried unloading ActiveWords and guess what? ALT-Spacebar works every time. While I mentioned that I run it in my initial post, I forgot to *actually* try exiting it. Typical.

Problem solved (at least on my installation).

Thanks again,

Mike

You've also listed kbstart in the alternate programs section of the help file twice! ;)

Changelog? :)
What's new in the beta as opposed to the last stable version? Or am I missing something... :)

every help file of every donationcoder.com app has a section at end listing the changelog and listing related program.
you can also read this online by going to the program page and viewing the online help file (which is sometimes not updated as frequently).

for example F&R page is here: http://www.donationc...r/findrun/index.html
once there you can click the "online help" link in left sidebar and go the version history page.
