Ok, glad to know at least we figured out what was causing that.
I belive '\7' worked in previous versions, something must be wrong. (or it was some other escape sequence which i am not remembering correctly
I don't think it'd make much sense for that behaviour to be changed for this plugin specifically. I mean, if generaly people would like to use digits to launch, this should apply to this plugin which also has several stuff that can be launched. Still, in the specific situation that you're entering a new event, it might make sense to disable the feature.
Maybe mouser could add a "temporary disable feature" capability to the plugin framework?
IIRC, the plugins that have memo display (like fcalc, for example), ignore that setting and always assume it's off, so the capability is there, in theory.
In short, the answer to your question, sri, would be: No, not at this time.
