Re: [Bulk] Re: [Bulk] Re: JAWS latest trick

I believe that undo works differently for different applications.

  Bill,

  In Notepad? That's a surprise for me.

    Undo doesn't work only for the last command.  I've used undo to go back 
several commands, as many as 6 or 7.

      Hi,

      Only problem with this solution is that I have done some other Word type 
command *before* I discovered what the problem probably was. Undo only works on 
the *LAST* command. (frownie face)

      Oh, boy can't tell you how many time's I've accidentally done that, and 
wondered where all the text went. Sure is nice to have undo.

        Adrian:

         

        sorry for the late reply.  I was in the UK from 15th June to 4th July, 
so I am Catching up.  Although I took my laptop, I could not get it fixed until 
a few days before my return.  Too late to worry about email and the like, until 
I got back.

         

        The CTRL+A command is the Windows command for highlighting all text in 
a document, email message, etc, regardless as to where the cursor is in the 
text.

         

        The CTRL+A command, cannot be used to unhighlight text.

         

        Using any of the arrow keys, page up and page down keys and the home 
and end keys will unhighlight any text that is highlighted.

         

        Warning!  If you have selected/highlighted any text, Pressing a key 
that inserts a character, including a space character, will result in the text 
that is selected/highlighted, being deleted.  If you accidentally do this, 
press CTRL+Z to undo your last action and restore the highlighted text.

         

        HTH

         

        Sincerely:

         

        Dave Durber

          When I tried Laura's suggestion, the first press of control-a 
resulted in JAWS saying, "Selected." When I pressed control-a a second time, 
JAWS said, "Unselected." this was in an email message.

           

          Perhaps it works in XP, which I have, but not Windows 7, which I know 
you've advanced to. The only other explanation must be that I'm not an Anasazi!

          Hi Adrian,

          Yes, I gave it a try but nothing changed.

          Now, even more interesting is the fact that when I am in an email and 
press ctrl+A I do hear "selected" but when in a folder such as "deleted items" 
or whatever I hear (nothing selected? In both cases the keystroke actually 
works properly although JAWS does not think so. (LOLLOLLOL)

          Oh well, maybe JAWS V12?

          Did you test Laura's suggestion? I just did, and she's right. It's 
useful information.

          I don't think ctrl+a ever unselects anything.  I think CTRL+A always 
selects everything.

            Hit control a twice that way you can make sure that everything is 
selected and unselected that's just my advice.  Take it or leave it.

              Hi,

              Again, W7 64 bit, Outlook 2007 and an HP Pavilion.

              In Outlook when I press ctl+a to select all messages in the 
folder JAWS dutifully reports that "Nothing selected" - but - when I do the 
shift+delete and then confirm guess what, everything *WAS* selected and all is 
gone.

              Just thought I would mention the misinformation so someone is not 
lulled into thinking that nothing war really selected and makes an unfortunate 
discovery. (LOL)

              Cy, The Anasazi  jus
