[Feature Request] TAB key working as DOWN key
« on: July 13, 2011, 01:11:07 AM »
I guess, such behavior of TAB key will increase the speed and reduce switching of attention

please share your opinions.

But what button should then perform the functions of the (Ctrl-/Alt-/Win-) Tab key? :-\ It has so many good uses already.

you can do this already -- just go to "Keyboard Interface" options TAB and uncheck the box labeled "Tab autocompletes":

that's only because i'm not insane.

the down arrow does what you want -- it can be used to move down from the search edit and through the results -- i'm not sure why it would be a good idea to use tab for this.

I like the alt+number combination for launching one of the first 9 results. If what I want is not in the first nine I just keep typing until it is :)
This is a lot quicker than down-down-down-down-down or even tab-tab-tab-tab.
It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

This is quite easily accomplished with a bit of AHK script:

Code: Autohotkey
  1. #IfWinActive, Find and Run Robot 2
  2. {
  3.     TAB:: SendInput, {Down}
  4. }
