Bug: Number keys always trigger a choice
« on: November 30, 2006, 07:56:27 AM »
v1.13.02
Standard keyboard. using XP regional settings for UK and US Dvorak

If a number key is pressed when a corresponding choice is displayed, then that choice is launched, otherwise the key press in ignored.

That means it is impossible to find files with a number in them, or to have one as part of the argument to an alias.

What use is Calc without numbers?

very simple fix, go to Interface tab of options, and uncheck "Digit keys launch results from search window".

Then make sure in lower right you have either ctrl # or alt # launch the apps.  this is what i do, i use alt+# to launch my apps, which frees up the number keys for real use.
