Pick a source member, right click, go to User Actions, and Select Work With
User Actions. You can Select a new Member Action, give it a name and
command (like TD in your case) and enter the command. Be sure to tick the
box that says "Prompt First".

After you save it, repeat the right click, User Actions, and you should see
'TD' as an option. If you select it, a prompt screen should appear.

If you ever need to alter the command, just go back into the Work with User
Actions and you can alter what you have previously entered.

Subject: Re: [WDSCI-L] In RDi, I want to control the member being openned

How I can get by with this.

I guess the best I can do is to include the NOTES file in the Member Filter.
Then the member that is in NOTES will appear alphabetically next to the real
source member.
I can use the Properties Panel to see if the member highlighted is from the
NOTES file - or see if the member is a TYPE(TEXT) that might be in a BNDSRC
or QSQLSRC file.

One thing is delaying a full rollout of RDi for maintaining all our source

We have a WRKMBRPDM mini-cmd that helps us maintain our notes of issues that
were discovered in various programs.
These issues did not rise in importance to become full fledged projects yet.
Rather, these are programmer notes collected over the years of fixes and
ideas to present to our users.

In PDM, we have a command that we use to build a member for these notes in
the source file NOTES.
This member is the same name as the Production Source Member. ( These are
not necessarily Tasks for RDi yet. )

When we are in PDM working on source, option "TD" activates our TODO
command, passing &N to the command.
The command simply does

I would like to create a User Action in RDi to open a member - or to display
a CTL+SHIFT+A panel.
Is there a way to do this in RDi ?
Does the iSphere add-on have something that can help me with this ?
