Done IDE copy (OR REMOVE) Set var name to Watch list by hotkey

Oct 18, 2009
In the IDE, if the current line starts with Set, copy to the Watch list the text up to an equals sign by pressing a hotkey or clicking an icon.

E.g. hilited line is:

set current_month_num=%_month

Just press a hotkey and the variable current_month_num is added to the Watch list.

If the variable is already in the watch list, remove it.

There's "Add to watch" (W) on the right-click context menu for selected text. A way to open that menu with the keyboard would be nice (I couldn't find one). The usual Shift-F10 gives a rather uninteresting Windows context menu.
