Character selection in Input and memo box.
Not sure if this is due to limitations of libraries you use or something in the coding, but there are some odd key combinations that don't work in these boxes.
In the Input box the normal word select keys shift+ctrl+left/right don't work but shift+home/end do.
In the memo box the shift+ctrl+left/right work, but shift+up/down, shift+home/end and shift+ctrl+home/end don't. To move the selection into the next/previous line of text you have to use shift+left/right at the end/start of the line.
This is a minor issue in such a great program, but I often want to select just the previous word to replace it, and currently I have to use multiple backspace or double click the mouse to do it.

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: Aliases for tracking packages

Great idea, but I wanted to be able to use the hotkey copy function to load the tracker links for all of them and use the index to select. I am a FARR newbie (so don't know if I did it right).

I created an alias "track", regex "^track (.*)", pasted all the results from your tracker alias file into the actions, and created a hotkey to load track %cliptext% into the search window with copy selected text checked.

Now I just highlight a tracking number in an email, use the hotkey, then select the appropriate service from the list. Saves a few keystrokes from entering the service shortcut (ups, dhl, etc) and cut and paste the tracking number.

I also added a couple of Australian trackers:
aae $$1 |$$1
fastway $$1 |$$1


Unfinished Requests / Re: IDEA: network detection

Thanks, but I assume he has gone elsewhere as there were no other followup requests. But I have posted in a few topics, I can't find many current requests that haven't already been answered several times, and which I have some chance of helping with. So just posted in a few of the toopics that didn't have answered/completed/or some such in the topic and selected notify so if they do answer I will get a heads up.
So I'm off to the search page to see if I can get a list of topics that aren't quite as old and which don't appear to be answered already. Eventually I'll find something I can help with.  :)

Glad to know I'm not quite as senile as I thought.
If I come across requests that are way old, should I ask if they are still required, or just use the "Report to moderator" link?

So I guess that is why it is under the "Finished Programs folder!  :-[ I'm an idiot
