Most accelerated keys work as expected, but the Up arrow key scrolls way too fast.

 :tellme: That is very strange, as there's no difference between the code run for each key. In what program do you experience this?

Any (EditPlus, Visual Studio 2003, Notepad, etc.).  It's hard to tell if the speed is actually different, but the strange visual effect when scrolling up makes it difficult to navigate.

 :tellme: I don't know what this could be...

I just uploaded FastNavKeys v1.1. Try setting it at 0ms 2nd delay, and see some fast scrolling!

 :) I have it set at 150ms 1st delay, 30ms 2nd delay and 0.0 acceleration, which is not that much less than the minimum Windows value, but it makes all the difference.

But be warned! Now, when I'm at another computer, it drives me crazy waiting for that slooooow caret!

Just tried it. Very good idea. Nice for coding too!

I'm having some problem with this utility...which makes me sad because I really like what it does.

If I press the same cursor key individually in quick succession, the cursor movement gets stuck in an endless loop and continues scrolling without any key being pressed.

I have verified this on two different keyboards on separate computers.  The settings I last used when I saw it were 200, 60, 0.0

It might be a bit tricky to duplicate....it seems that I have to press the same key in quick succession (like 10-12 times) then follow it with briefly holding down the key.
