Wrong key assignment ??

Postby hbarkhof on Tue May 22, 2018 1:48 pm

Hi. I use version 16 , Unicode version.
I discovered (I think) an error in the key assignment for 'Disclose' ⊃
When I hoover over that token in the Language Bar , it says that I
can use Control+X , and function is 'First'
However I need to enter Control+Shift+X

The Enclose ⊂ Says Control+Z which is correct , function 'Enclose'

Do I do something wrong or is it simply wrong in the program and documents ?

Hi. The program and documents are correct. However, Microsoft Windows' commands could be overriding the Dyalog ones. This applies to Ctrl+X, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V (⊂, ∩ and ∪ respectively). For each of these keys there is nothing currently defined in the Ctrl + Shift equivalent place, so that will work to enter the key. Alternatively to turn off the Windows override:
1. Open the Configuration dialog box (Options > Configure in the menu)
2. Go to the Unicode Input tab.
3. Click the "Configure Layout..." button.
4. Unselect the "Use Ctrl+X,C,V for clipboard checkbox.

(Note that on some versions of Dyalog this checkbox is in a different location, but the above instructions are correct for version 16.0).

I hope that helps. Fiona
