I agree, but I can't get it to go wrong at the moment (WDSCi v7.0.0.8) so we can only hope that Nicola will report it to IBM while the problem can be seen. Hopefully, my suggestions will work as an alternative method until the fix is released.

If this is a bug, IBM needs to fix it. The line commands are an effective editing tool.

This is probably not what you were wanting to hear, but I found the same issue with the SEU commands (it was an intermittent but damaging problem for me) so I resolved to learn the LPEX way of doing things. LPEX is the name for the editor used in WDSCi and RDi, and it is much more powerful and useful than SEU.

This link will help you find keypresses to do what you want: <http://wiki.midrange.com/index.php/WDSC_shortcuts#Keyboard_shortcuts> I would suggest the ALT-L, SHIFT-down, CTRL-X and CTRL-V (in column 1) key combinations to move groups of source lines about, and the CTRL-D key to duplicate lines.

The Midrange Wiki has a lot of tips and useful advice on WDSCi and some extra for RDi that should help you quickly surpass your peak of productivity after you stop using SEU for source editing.

Have fun!

I have downloaded the time-bombed demo of the RDi in order to test it.

It is said that is full-functional like the 'official' version, only
limited, but i run into several small problem : mainly, the SEU-Like
keywords gave me prob.

For example, the classic couple M -> A (move a row/more rows after the
selected destination) cause the source row to be deleted, but the dest copy
isnt' create. Also, the RP key won't word.

I have run the updater, but it doesnt fix (a week ago about) the problem.

Since we're considering to buy the full version, does we have to consider
that this bug is fixed in that release, or does this affect full version
