The keypress <Alt-G> performs some rather remarkable functions in Pathagoras. It is a tool you will want to memorize.
The "G" stands for "Get". When pressed, it will get a wide variety of different items, depending upon the context in which it is called. Here is a summary.
When <Alt-G> is pressed next to the following keywords (quotes indicate the exact text):
•"meeting" -- Pathagoras will start a GoToMeeting session. (Please call ahead before entering a meeting.)
•"last" -- Pathagoras will open the last document called or saved via a Pathagoras function. (Note: "lastdoc" will performs same task.)
•"lastpath" -- Pathagoras will open the folder of the last document called or saved via a Pathagoras function.
•any phrase -- (1) Pathagoras will determine if that phrase is a QuickLink. If it is, the 'File Open' dialog pointing to the QuickLink will open. Otherwise, Pathagoras will search for the clause indicated in the section below titled: 'When <Alt-G> is pressed next to unhighlighted, non-keyword text".
•"upgrade" -- Pathagoras will check to see if you are entitled to the latest upgrade of Pathagoras, and if so, offer to download and install it.
When <Alt-G> is pressed next to unhighlighted, non-keyword text:
•if pressed against a number, it will open the SmartPath assigned to that number in the current profile.
•if pressed against a word, it will assume that the word is either a document or a clause name and will attempt to locate that name in the following locations in the order listed:
•If the term is 'fully qualified,' Pathagoras will look in the designated location and no further. ('Fully qualified' means that the document is pointed to by drive, folder, subfolders(s) and name. E.g., "c:\office forms\estate planning\trusts\living trust clauses\rlt134.doc".)
•If Pathagoras sees only a term name, it will determine if the term name meets the prefix/suffix naming criteria (two to four letters followed by three or four numbers). If it does, it will look in the book associated with the prefix in the Prefix Table.
•If not found in the above locations, or if the term is not a prefixed name, Pathagoras will look in the Position #1 Book (The 'Position 1' Book is one that occupies the first bookshelf in the current Library.)
•If not yet found, Pathagoras will look in the SuperFolder (if designated).
•If still not found, Pathagoras will look in the SuperGlossary (if designated).
(You can tell Pathagoras to look in a SuperBook before the Position #1 Book. Check the box found in Pathagoras Features | Utilities/Settings | All Settings | File Locations labeled "Check SuperBooks" first.)
•If still not found, Pathagoras will look for the term in your (Micorsoft's) Auto-Correct dictionary.

When <Alt-G> is pressed next to highlighted text:
•Pathagoras will presume that you want to add the highlighted text to one of your books. <Alt-G> will call up the Term Works! screen. You can then give the highlighted text a name and an appropriate subject. Then you can select into which book of the current library you wish to save the highlighted text.
