Control key to run tasks

Postby joe935 » Fri Jun 25, 2010 2:26 pm

I just installed version 6.0.7.183. I Have been using Version 5 for several years.
In Version 5 I had a control function (Ctrl + Alt + R) which would run a task I had set up to delete files in a folder.
I can not find that function in Version 6. Am I missing it or is it just not available?
If its not available will it be in the future?
Thanks

Yup, please create a ticket in Trac. It's not currently implemented.

Thanks for the response, Joel.
I just tried to post in Trac, but it will not let me log in with the ID i use here.
Could I ask you to post it for me?
Thanks

You'll need to create a new account for Trac; the Trac and forum accounts aren't synced.

I'd rather you create the ticket so that you can track it in future.

I have created the ticket (with acknowledgement to Joe), in case there is further difficulty. But I do hope Joe persists in his efforts to join; there is a lot of interesting information in Trac, not least because it is the place to learn how Eraser is developing.

The email may have fallen foul of a spam blocker; it is worth checking in the spam folder.

David I have even tried changing the email address to gmail and i am still not getting the verification ticket.
I have no spam filters for the origional email i was using.
Although the app says an email was sent it should be verified that an actual email IS being sent.
Thanks
PS I don't even get an email that tells me my address has been changed>

Sorry that you've had so much trouble; as I'm not on the Eraser Team, there's not much I can do about the server. But at least your request is agreed by Joel, and is in Trac.

It could be that they just don't work weekends. Irish weekends, that is ... :)

Garrett seemed to have fixed it because I got Trac notifications yesterday.
