Insert text marker with key binding

A text marker will be inserted at the cursor position. Eddie prompts the user to press any desired key combination that will be assigned to the marker (a so-called key binding).

A text marker with a key binding can be set by clicking on the icon next to the one previously described. Eddie will request you to define a key combination be pressing any desired keys, which will be assigned to the marker.

The key binding will be displayed in the text in the following form (provided Control code long view is active):

ACS #Key

A stands for [Alternate], C for [Control] and S for [Shift]. If a specific [Shift] key is meant, Eddie uses L or R (for left and right [Shift] keys respectively). The # character indicates that the key is part of the numeric keypad at the far right of the keyboard.

Warning: All key combinations already assigned by the macro recorder ([Alternate]+[Esc]) will be intercepted by Calamus and therefore cannot be used for text markers. However you can get around this restriction by a small trick: Just activate beforehand the key combination for the Activate text macro prefix, which can be set in the Special key bindings dialog by the Key bindings editor function of the Text module.

For setting and going to text markers we recommend that you assign each function to a key with the macro recorder. For this two key bindings are recorded as follows:

First macro

  • Start recorder with [Alternate]+[Esc]
  • Click on Insert text marker with key binding
  • Press key(s) for Activate text macro (usually [Control]+[M])
  • Stop recording with [Alternate]+[Esc]
  • Press the key combination for Insert text marker
Second macro

  • Start recorder with [Alternate]+[Esc]
  • Click on Go to text marker
  • Press key(s) for Activate text macro (usually [Control]+[M])
  • Stop recording with [Alternate]+[Esc]
  • Press the key combination for Go to text marker

The text markers can then be controlled completely from the keyboard and can be used very quickly.
