Autoexecute Keystroke Aliases

Mar 6, 2009
For a number of versions of TCC, I have been using an alias to reassign F3 to an autoexec keystroke. My alias file contains:


With version 17, this no longer works and F3 does the "standard" previous line echo. I've tried the NormalKey and NormalEditKey aliases to no avail. Is there some other trick to get this working again?

It works here. Here's my set-up. The "NormalKey" directive belongs in the [TCC]/[4NT] section of the ini file.
v:\> grep -i f3 %_ininame

v:\> alias d
*dir /a /p /m /k /h /ne

v:\> alias @@f3
