possible to re-attach 'options' to Alt-O?
« on: February 20, 2014, 10:16:57 AM »
I see in the forum that Alt-O got unwired from the 'options' panel due to an external conflict.  I know how to add hotkeys, but don't know how to tell it to open the farr options panel.  Is it possible?

Go to options > hotkeys. Right click to add a new hotkey. Choose hotkey trigger, for example alt+O. In the "Text for Search Edit Box" field, enter this: gooptions

You can also make a shorter alias, which I find easier to remember compared to hotkey combinations. Create a new alias. Set the trigger text to "opt" and in the results box enter "dosearch gooptions". You can now type "opt" in FARR to immediately open the options.
