Keyboard access to popup menu of note's attributes
Jan 26th, 2011, 8:34pm
 
At the moment, the only way to access the popup menu (drop down menu?) of a key attribute in a note window is by lifting one's hands off the keyboard and using the mouse.

May I request that some keyboard key be used for this instead? While I would propose the down arrow key (which currently causes the cursor to go to the end of the attribute's value, just as pressing alt-down arrow key does), though the exact key (or combo) isn't important.

I see it's been discussed before,[1] but I thought to raise it again in the feature request forum. Many thanks for your consideration.

I would like to support this feature request. From the other thread mentioned above, I found Mark A's latest observation spot on:

Quote:
FWIW, once the key attribute pop-up menu is activated the type/tab method of selection works. Perhaps what you need is a shortcut to open the pop-up menu of the key attribute currently in edit mode...


This is, in my view, exactly what I would consider a great advantage when inputting text directly into Tinderbox, with numerous notes for smaller chunks of text, and attributes to add some metadata to those chunks.
