Hi Jens,

Now the converse is true;

Fdesign replaces "^n" with "#n".

fl_set_button_shortcut(ob, "^n", 1); is completely ignored. The  "n" is underlined on the label but ALT or CTRL "n" do nothing.

I looked at the pre6 Change Log and the most recent archive list
before posting.

The shortcut key convention "#" char for ALT key no longer seems to
works. It seems to be replaced with "^" for CTRL.

If I use fdesign to add a shortcut key using "#B" it saves my input
but an edit of the same button shows "^B" was inserted replacing my
"#B" .

fdesign -convert old.fd also replaces "#B" with "^B".

If I manually edit the fdesign created ?.c file and force the
shortcut to "#B" the ALT key still does not work. Again the CTRL key
is used.

and finally;

fl_set_button_shortcut(button, "#B", 1); Still ends up as a  "^B".

Is this the correct new behaviour? Have we abandoned the old ALT key?

I hope I found and fixed this bug (which also seems to take care
of fdesign getting confused. So here's the new version you can

                    Thank you and best regards, Jens
