I'm a recently converted Pocket PC man trying to get me head round key quick and all things palm and I'm stuck with 2 things.

1. I want to reassign or dissable the BACK key as I keep hitting it by mistake and jumping out of the program I'm in. Is this possible with Key Quick and if so what can it be assigned to ?

2. When I'm filling in a form with several fields in it how can I move between them without using a stylus?

:confused:

Welcome.
1. I'm not 100% sure but I think it is not possible with KeyQuick.
2. Did you try Ctrl+p = next field and Ctrl+o (oscar) = previous field ?
This is not in KQ, it's standard, look in Ctrl+k.
For more explanations about KQ, follow my signature. ;)

Thanks for the feedback I had already read your postings on key quick a few times which got me this far. On each reading the darkness clears a little and clarity seems just round the corner!

1. I suspected that might be the case, one lives in hope

2. I tried using Ctrl p and o but it has no effect, anyone got any other ideas? The particular program I'm using is called tradesman from andychapman.net

Try this.

Get Hi-Launcher. It will shorten the usage of your stylus tremendously. Also, press and hold the JOG Dial for a pink hi-lighter to come up and you can scroll through a programs, buttons, drop-down lists, lists, etc.

if you want to disable your back button, download SharkBtn and assign Back to None

Downloaded Sharky's suggestion and now my Back button brings up the brightness slider :)

Still working on the moving between fields on Tradesman, pressing and hold on the jog button does let me move around the screen to select options but I don't cycle through the text fields

Thanks to all above for their helpfull suggestions - keep them coming

I don't use tradesman.

Did you try to get the pink cursor (control tap) then press "m" ?
