Actually, I think that's a good idea.  I've also been "burned" by this behavior sometimes!

Better yet, allow customizable function keys in EG, as they are customizable in DMS.  That's one feature I miss.

One of the reasons why F3 is such a popular shortcut for code selection is because there is no "one-click" selective submit on the toolbar (it takes two clicks). If that was available, as it is in Display Manager, then that would be a productive alternative to F3. One way to get this would be to have a customisable toolbar, similar to Quentin's idea for function keys.

I would also love to see the F3 key (or something other) give an option to run the proceedure/step in which the cursor currently resides. So if your cursor is within a data step and you press the F3 key you execute only that data step. Maybe a Shift+F3?

I am using EG 5.1 , it runs the program only, when you hit F3 or if your cursor resides inside the program , but if you have selected process flow and then if you hit F3 it goes through the whole process flow.

Creating a keyboard macro to collapse the current step and select the collapsed code should be simple.

Unfortunately there seems no way to "submit" among  editor abbreviations, to chain collapse+select+submit into one macro (for which you can assign a function key/combination)

This has happened to me too and was very anoying.  Agree that this functionality should be removed or changed to another key combination (maybe with a shift of something.)

F8 does submit only the selected portion of the code
