Alternative for alias trigger /

Is it possible to exchange the trigger / for aliases with some other key or can an alternative be added?
On German keyboards pressing Shift+7 is not very convenient.

Thank you


That must be really annoying when using Unix/Linux filesystems!

I don't know of an alternative to using the forward slash but here's a button which might help. It opens a dialog for you to type the alias name into (without the slash) and it will then go to that alias. You could bind it to a hotkey for keyboard use:

<?xml version="1.0"?> <button display="both" effect="gray"> <label>Go to Alias</label> <tip>Go to an Alias without typing slash.</tip> <icon1>46</icon1> <function type="normal"> <instruction>dopusrt /cmd Go PATH /{Rs|Enter Alias Name}</instruction> </function> </button>(With that in your clipboard, go to Customize mode, right-click a toolbar and select Paste to add the button to your toolbar.)

Not as nice as being able to type directly into the standard path box, though.

I have created an AutoIt3-script that translates "-" to "/" as soon as it's entered in the path box:

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4) While 1 WinWaitActive("classname=dopus.lister") If ControlGetText("active", "", "Edit1")="-" Then ControlSend("active", "", "Edit1", "{END}{BS}/" ) EndIf WEnd

Maybe it's helpful for other non-english keyboard users, too. :wink:

Thanks for your hint with the Go command.
