Q36900: QB.EXE 4.50 ALT+File+Load File Command Doesn’t Recognize D Key
Article: Q36900 Product(s): See article Version(s): 4.50 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | buglist4.50 B_BasicCom | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 12-DEC-1989 The Load File command on the File menu of the QuickBASIC Version 4.50 editor does not allow the D key to load a document. Instead, the cursor will move to the Document option when D is pressed, but will not select the Document option. To work around this problem, you can press the SPACEBAR to select the Document option after the cursor is tabbed over to the Document option. Another workaround is to use the mouse to click on the Document option. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in QuickBASIC Version 4.50. This problem was corrected in the QBX.EXE environment of Microsoft BASIC PDS Version 7.00 (fixlist7.00). In QBX.EXE, "D" is no longer the access key for "Document". "T" is now used for selecting "Document". In QBX.EXE, the access keys for "Module", "Include" and "Document" are also highlighted. The following key strokes (while in edit mode) duplicate the problem: ALT F L TAB TAB TAB Pressing the M or I keys at this point will produce expected results, but pressing the D key will not.
