Confusing 3 ways GOLD* is presented: please give us back the centered dot in all contexts
Author: firstname.lastname@example.org (ulrich-merkel)
I just had some serach field which holds a profile as an initial Value: In U9, no matter if I enter this in the Initial Value field or use it stringed to assign it via proc, I always get the centered-dot combonation: myField = "DAB·*·|TST·*" Compared to the U8 way, it's superb that I can copy&paste it to my winword documentation (or in this post here) and even when I print it, it's black-and-whicte clear that this is a gold-combination. Now I've done the same in U10. The InitialValue was empty and when I clicked I got the data entry field which shows GOLD-Keys as I am used with the centered dot. But as soon as I hit ENTER, the centered dots disappeard leaving the keys in a red color (not so good if you print). Writing script introduced a 3rd way of displaying a GOLD key with a black (sorry, looks like a purple) background. Copy-Paste will transfer these as ESC etc. so documenting a piece of code in WinWord is a matter of manual modifications ... Think a lot of people in Amsterdam remember the waste of time when you have to do this to show code examples for the helpfile. And in contrast to U9, I can not copy the contents of InitialValue and paste it to my field assignment string script to achieve the same result. The editor will treat this just as ordinary text and not as a retrieve profile. Suggestion: Would it be possible to have GOLD-keys beeing handled like U9 in all different contexts ? Think this would be very helpful not only for developers comming from the U9, but for newones as well to have a single best representation.
