The users tell me that they don't like remember shortcut keys. Which is why I am stuck showing the menu navigation. Easier to learn "visually" at first, until you get comfortable with the software product. Nothing wrong with that! :)
I point out to the users to right-click on the source, and select: View>Open new view for the Split-Screen.
Or use the shortcut Ctrl+2 as it shows on the Context Menu.
Of course there is no reason to F15 to browse the spool file. One of the greatest things is that RDI gives you an Error List of compiler Errors! Why browse the spool files for errors?
For some, I have remapped the Ctrl+2 to F15=Split screen. But, have discovered that is a waste of time. Just learn the new shortcut, or use context menu for split screen, a.k.a. "Open new View Ctrl+2".
F16=Find next still works in LPEX, they love that when I point that out.
PS. I guess the difference is that they see the list function-keys at the bottom of their SEU Screens. Like F15=Browse Options, F16=Repeat Find and F24=More options. But use the menus or shortcuts keys, it is your choice.
I don't buy that argument. I believe people use it, but I don't think it's being completely honest. How many of them have learned F15 to browse another member or the spoolfile from their last compile, or F16 to search or F4 to prompt a command, or <gasp!> F3 to exit? Are these that different than a shortcut key?
