I was going to say that doesn't work at all for me. But if you change LAmiga to RAmiga it does !
Yep, my mistake, I wasn't on my Amiga at that point otherwise I would have checked before posting!

And if you do have the prefs set to close the parent window automatically then holding RAmiga will keep the parent window open - eg. it reverses the current setting you may have.

Yes, it does mention a number of these tricks.
I get some danish version for some reason but in prefs/locale I've choosen Swedish as my number one option and after that "english" and last "english-british". So why doesn't it choose english if a swedish version isn't available?

EDIT: Oh I see that someone obviously thought that you would understand that if you're from Sweden? Wouldn't it be better to strictly follow the options in prefs/locale?
That's definitely not intended (although of course I will claim that the Danish version is second to none and should be enjoyed by anyone - but then I might be slightly biased ... ;-)).

I can confirm from various installations here that it is indeed an error in the installation archive; the Danish Workbench.guide has for some reason been put not only in Locale/Help/danish/Sys/ where it belongs, but also in Locale/Help/swedish/Sys/.

I've made a report about it in Bugzilla.

But you can safely delete the copy of Workbench.guidefrom the swedish directory - unless you actually do enjoy reading it, of course.

Best regards,

Niels

Sounds like I've got a few more articles right into Jack's dictionary... some pretty neat shortcut keys+mouse combos here!

Sat in front of my mac atm.. if your a Mac user as well like me try holding shift and double-clicking the title bar of a window... see it? What real-life usage does that possibly have? :lol:

That's why I wrote "if using the default setting". I'm a pro AOS user lol.

I know, it was not for your benefit. I just added the bit you missed that the newbies may not realise, that is is a toggle setting ;-)
