IDE v10 questions

#1
1. In an earlier thread, Rex mentioned something about changing shortcut
keys in the IDE via a Customize menu. I have not been able to find this
option. Where should I be looking?

2. In the IDE's View menu, going to the first item, Toolbar, and pressing
enter doesn't seem to have any effect. Unlike other items in the menu,
there is no checkbox next to it. Or perhaps there is but my screen reader,
JAWS 10.0, isn't seeing it for some reason.

3. JAWS has a function that can automatically label toolbar buttons. It
does this by moving the cursor to each graphic and labeling it with tool tip
text. For some reason this does not work for the IDE. Rex, I know you're
not a screen reader expert, but I'm wondering if the IDE is presenting its
tool tips in some way that JAWS can't handle.

Right click on the menu, select "Customize", then "Keyboard".

Are you setting MSAAMenu in TCMD.INI?

I have no idea. Does it work with the Take Command toolbars?

Yes. And now I see that I have the same problem with the Toolbar item in
TCMD's menu. (This is still build 38; I haven't had a chance to try
anything later.)

I can't really tell because the Take Command toolbar already has text
labels.
