Q41475: Using Brief Emulation and Tags in TOOLS.INI
Article: Q41475 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 | 1.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | buglist1.00 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 17-MAY-1989 If you invoke a tagged section from your TOOLS.INI when using the Microsoft editor with brief keystroke emulation, some of the key assignments will revert back to the default. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Version 1.00. We are researching this problem and will post new information as it becomes available. As demonstrated in the following example, some of the keystrokes are reassigned to the default keystrokes if you rename the BRIEF.INI file to be TOOLS.INI and then add a new tag section: [m-mono] height:23 fgcolor:07 errcolor:0F stacolor:70 infcolor:70 Start editing a file, then bring in this new tag field by typing the following: arg "mono" shift+f10 The following demonstrates this behavior and all compile lines revert to default: window will change from F1 to unassigned help will change from ALT+H to F1 argcompile will change from ALT+F10 to F5 save will change from ALT+W to undefined linemark will change from ALT+I to undefined linetotop will change from CTRL+T to undefined leftsideofwindow will change from SHIFT+HOME to undefined rightsideofwindow will change from SHIFT+END to undefined createhorizwindow will change from F3 to undefined createvertwin will change from F4 to undefined deletewindow will change from F5 to undefined
