Technical Issues - Grid keyboard shortcuts, etc.
FilmStar data entry grids include keyboard shortcuts which can be much faster than using the mouse. As an example, bring up the Optimization Targets dialog and try the following:
Ctrl+Up go to top row Ctrl+Down go to first empty row Shift+Ctrl+Up highlight column to top Shift+Ctrl+Down highlight column to bottom Ctrl+Left go to first column Ctrl+Right go to last column
Suppose you need to change angles to 15 degrees. Type 15 in the top row and copy
that value to the clipboard with
Edit Copy <Ctrl+C>; then highlight the column and click Edit Paste <Ctrl+V>.
The Targets dialog offers another method. Type the required value and click Edit Spawn Cell <Ctrl+W>. The value is duplicated in cells below.
For enhanced readability, try setting Grid row colors in File Configuration Preferences Grid Style to Cyan-Yellow (as shown below) or to the colors of your choice. This applies to most grids with multiple columns.
