Text Arrows

This is a response to Vol 16 Larry 5 ("Give me my arrows")...


There is indeed a solution to your problem. Just go to your home stack (push the Archipelago button and then the little house icon in the upper right corner of the monopoly board, or, even faster, type H).

Once in your home stack, push the left arrow button until you reach your User Preferences Card. You should see a checkbox labeled "Text Arrows". Check that box. Then return to Archipelago.

You should now notice that clicking the left and right arrow keys no longer moves you from card to card. Now, click your mouse inside a text field (click it HERE for example) just as you would if you were going to make a change. NOW try the arrow keys. Notice that the Up and Down arrows work as well.

To summarize: those of you with keyboards that have arrow keys can use them EITHER to navigate through stacks, OR to move the cursor inside text fields. You make your choice by either checking or not checking the text arrows box on the user preference card of your home stack.

End of lesson.
