Quick Picks

   Pathagoras makes it easy to keep your favorite Pathagoras commands handy and in a single location. The tool is called Quick Picks, and you access it simply by pressing <Alt-Q>.

  With Quick Picks, you can assign up to 15 Pathagoras functions to buttons. To activate Quick Picks, press Alt-Q. At the resulting screen, select a button and then a command. (Note that Pathagoras has pre-assigned a few popular commands. You can overwrite the assignments or keep them and add new ones to the remaining unassigned buttons. You can add 'in-bulk' using the button at the far left/bottom, or set them one at a time. You can even change a label (the text to the right of the button) if you don't like the label we created.

The list that ships with Pathagoras is augmented on a fairly regular basis, and your installed version of Pathagoras likely has more choices than those listed above.

If you have a 'favorite' button that you wish for us to add to our list so you can add it to your Quick Picks collection, just ask.

 You can add just about any Pathagoras command to your QAT. And we encourage you to do so. Read more about that here.
