Hotkey or Alias to open FARR options window?
« on: August 09, 2015, 10:21:12 AM »
Hello, I'm not sure if this functionality is available. Is there way to open FARR's Options window with having to click on the toolbar. Say, using a hotkey or setting up an alias? Thank you for the wonderful program ;D

Thanks. I did find it in the online help. The local CHM help file is not working for me.

to fix a local help file that opens as blank, right click on the chm file to show file properties and find the UNBLOCK button; the problem is that windows sometimes marks downloaded help file as unsecure.

ps.
I thought there was a hotkey to open options from main window (Ctrl+O) but that seems to not work unless you are in the results list, so that may be considered a bug.

Yes, it could be/is a bug. I opted to use an alias that does [c]dolaunch gooptions[/c]. Btw the Help files says [c]Alt+O[/c] for the hotkey.
