If you mean some command(s) that you created then they are not actually
deleted, they are, as a minimum still preserved below the directory


For example, a command called C in the PC Keyboard menu would be found


as two files


So you could copy them to your new location below ~/denemo-<version>
and then install them into the menu by right clicking on an item in
that menu and choosing "More Commands" selecting the MyCommand.xml
ok thanks

you replace lines like

(d-AddKeybinding "Set0" "0")
(d-AddKeybinding "MyCommand" <keyname>)

easier would be to start from blank and add lines
(d-AddKeybinding "" "")

and then fill in the "" with name of command, name of keyboard key
to easy

in what sense? you have the scripts in a file somewhere? or you have
saved them as New Menu Items?
in separate files one for each hard coded note

they are available whether or not you have shortcuts assigned to them,
they are in your menu system.

ok that is much clearer now. even though it was in the thread
Yes, for each note you want a script saved using "Save as New Menu
Item" with a suitable command name, suitable label, and tooltip.

yes, in your script changing the shortcuts, your "mode-switch" command.

where are they? Unless you saved them somewhere anything in the Scheme
script window when you exit will be lost.
I saved them all in the .denemo_xxx/action/ directory
It will probably help you a lot if you post what you have done to the
mailing list - it will be easier to be sure what you are doing, and it
will provide a measure of backup.
I should post each of the hard code script files? I will save the hard-code-mode as a file as well.
