Keyboard Remapper (Windows only)
accessed via the new TGTools menu >> Options
You can now program any number of keyboard re-assignments, similar to a macro utility.
Each key can be mapped to either another key or a menu command.
This is the Keyboard Remapper (part of the Options dialog box) with a list of sample assignments:
As an example, the first assignment DEL (ask) means that TGTools will issue a confirmation request whenever the DEL key is pressed.
The fourth assignment END -> Fit in Window means that pressing the END key will be invoke the command "Fit in Window" from Finale's View menu.
Three buttons belong to the list of key assignments:
|Add...||Enter a new keyboard reassignment.|
|Edit...||Click on one of the assignments in the
list to select it,
then use this button to modify an existing assignment.
|Remove||Remove the selected assignment.|
