Far 3.0 x86 b4545 ... b4700 User Menu - Backspace broken

Post by centus » Fri 08 Jul, 2016 18:02

Hello,

It seems for some time (at least Far 3.0 build 4545 till 4700) has broken User Menu navigation. Help says :rtfm: :
The local menu may be placed in any folder. You may switch between the main menu and the user
menu by pressing Shift-F2. Also you may call the user menu of the parent folder by pressing BS.
As Shift-F2 works OK, the BS works the same as Shift-F2, and I am not able to switch to parent folder User Menu.
Can anyone confirm that it's not only my configuration? Please place FarMenu.ini menus in two folders, launch User Menu (F2) from child folder and press BackSpace - will you get Main Menu?

Best regards,
Grzegorz

It should work in 4740.

1. It does not work for me in 4740 (or maybe I don't understand the Help article correctly).
2. In fact, I've never used BS for that purpose, I always used ShiftF2. But since Far3.0.4427 ShiftF2 stopped calling local menus from parent directories.

Ok, I'll fix it, as it's the same bug. However, I can't find any mention of "Shift-F2 shall call local menus from parent directories" in the Help, would you kindly show me?

It isn't documented (and that was the reason I didn't say the word "bug"). It would be good to have it documented though.
