     *   and more and more and more ....
 
 
 
 
 
Overview Quote:



This tool does so incredibly much, the possibilities are at first overwhelming. Once you get it down, it all (or mostly) makes sense and is easy to use.

For example, the 1-2-3 keys are combined with the Windows key to activate

1 - Active Files
2 - Active ViewPads
3 - Recent files

Using Winkey + Shift for 1 and 2 jumps you back and forth with the most recently jumped to location. Makes it *very* easy to jump back and forth between notepads or files.

Using Control + Winkey + 3 allows you to search most recent.

If you prefix your search with ">" a 'Regular Expression' search will be performed. Ie. ">file[12]" will match file1 and file2. If you don't know about Regular Expressions, a normal search works great too!



Using Winkey + Shift and the arrow keys moves you around. Winkey + Shift UP and DOWN move you up and down between open files. (It's Nice!!). Winkey + Shift + LEFT and RIGHT move you left and right among the viewpads. (It's also Nice!!).



(Please stay away from 'experimental' features with live data!)



CLICK ON TRAY ICON FOR FULL INSTRUCTIONS.



 
 
again,  this is a pre-release.  There are over 70 features.  Making a single feature 'universal' to work on all or even most ecco systems in use is a trick.  With 70+ features very likely will be some bugs and issues on various systems.  Feel free to report.
