Sas Eg with autohotkey - toggle between open programs

Hi!

I'm following up on this closed thread:
https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Enterprise-Guide/SAS-EG-keyboard-shortcuts-previously-open-drop-d...

I cannot comment on that anymore.
Any news from the development team?

In particular, is there already a keyboard shortcut to switch between different open programs?

I tried to force autohotkey to "click" on the drop-down menu where the programs are listed, but with no success.

Any ideas or autohotkey snippets would be much appreciated! Thank you!

There isn't a direct key for this.  Use Shift+F6 to navigate among the main panes of your workspace, then arrow/Enter to select content in there (like programs from a list in your project tree).  You might be able to come up with an AutoHotkey script that does this for you.

Thanks Chris. I seem to have the same problem as the author of the original post - F6 and Shift+F6 does not work in the editor window.

Re autohotkey script - I was exactly hoping somebody could share her/his code. I failed to produce anything usable. Thank you

Can you tell us what version of EG you're using?  Shift+F6 works for me with v7.15.
