Dialogs controlled by the Keyboard

Question

How about being able to navigate through Dialog boxes with the keyboard. On Macs, if a dialog came up that had "Yes" and "No" as options you'd be able to hit the Y or N key to respond.

An example would be the Auto Save feature. The dialog asks if you want to save the document with No as the default. If you want to save you have to grab the mouse and click Yes. Clicking Y on the keyboard would be faster for me since I use the keyboard a lot.

Thanks

Mark

Most of the dialogs in VectorWorks already have keyboard equivalents for the items they contain. Hold down the command key and you'll see the key equivalent displayed next to each item.

I've noticed on a PC you can use the arrow keys to navagate between yes and no, but on a mac you can't. I guess this is a system thing, but I agree, it would be very useful to be able to toggle between yes and no on a mac.

Remember that you can hit 'Enter' for the default button (which is almost always the OK button), and command-period for the Cancel button.
