What the hot-key does
The hot-key carries out the following action:-
What the hot-key is
GoBug's default hot-key is Shift-Pause. On some keyboards this may be shown as Shift-Break. You can see what hot-key is currently set by clicking on the menu item "settings, define hot-key".
How to change the hot-key
Click on the menu item "settings, define hot-key". Press on the keys to use for the new hot-key. The display will tell you whether or not you can use that hot-key. If you want to use that hot-key click "apply". It is best to use an unusual combination of keys so that the hot-key cannot be invoked in ordinary use. Crtl and/or Shift and an F-key is usually a good combination. Avoid using combinations used by Windows eg. Alt-Tab, Alt-Shft-Tab, Alt-F4 or Alt-Esc or key combinations used as shortcuts by the application which you intend to debug.
Keyboard interface in hot-key dialog
Tab, Esc, Enter and the arrow keys are reserved to allow you to navigate and select within the dialog in the usual way, but the Shift, Crtl and Alt combinations of these keys can be used as a hot-key.
