Could not agree more! But, for the newbie, the whole RDI software can seem "overwhelming" at first. So show everything very SLOWLY. And only use the menu for the first time.

But, then I get that is too difficult or takes too long. Which I mention over time you get used to it, and you *might* find the shortcut keys "convenient".

All learning takes time... You did not pick up RPGLE overnight. Nor did you pick up Microsoft office overnight either.

One user I spend over 1-hour walking him through editing code, very slowly, and afterwards, he appreciated it. First thing he really like was more lines of code to view, the instant feedback on the compile. And the split screen views!

New things take time to digest. I have to go slow, and then they like it. And only show a little at time.

Couldn't agree more. There are only so many grey cells to go around . . .
