Note Window

Post by laz_gen » 04 Jun 2021 15:11

Newly upgraded to FH7.

I was running FH6.2 on Win 7 and now have FH7.0.5 on a new Win 10 laptop.

Still getting used to things new and different but have noticed something missing. The "Right Click" menu within a note window no longer has a "Select All" function. It is there in FH6.2 but not in FH7.

I can't seem to find anything in the preferences to enable this so can someone confirm this feature has been removed.

I know I can perform the same function with Ctrl-A but it seems a backward step to remove a universal Windows function like this.

Robin, I had not noticed that option had vanished. There is no way to customise those options and as you say Ctrl+A works.

The FH v6.2 plain text edit window can still be opened with Ctrl+Alt and double-click or click [...] on the original Note box.
That edit window still has right-click Select All.

I didn't know about the Ctrl+Alt double click feature to access the old style note box, that could prove useful.

Raised a support ticket for CP to consider.

Funnily enough the message window where I was entering my message to CP has a right click menu containing a "Select All" function, so why shouldn't FH7 have the same feature.
