Shortcut to move to Command Line

Hi All

Is there a shortcut that I can enter in the Keys window to make my cursor go back to the command line so I may enter a command?

If this is possible can it also be set as a toggle which would take me back to the same position i was in the text editor (if that is where i am).

Thanks
Steve

Re: Shortcut to move to Command Line

Turn the command line on using the DM command COMMAND.

Then the HOME key should toggle between that command line and your location in the file.

Re: Shortcut to move to Command Line

Unix it looks like the command would be Home to toggle as desired.

In Windows the command is Command to open the command line but I can't see how to get the cursor there. Focus looks like it would help but that is for the Command Window which is a slightly different beast and doesn't toggle. But a key assigned Command will return to the last position in the editor after closing the command line in a window. Click next to the command line to enter other commands.
