I am playing with Gretl 1.8.6cvs on Mac OS X 10.6.2.
Load a script: two Gretl windows are now open (Main + script)
The View menu is not activated but I do have two gretl windows open.
2. Why Scalars?
Run for example klein.inp. Then we have a Main window, a klein.inp window and a script
Now the View, Windows menu is active and shows three windows: Scalars, klein.inp and
Scalars? There is no scalars window open. When I click on Scalars an empty scalar window
3. Window switching
Switching windows on Mac OS X is easy: Command+` or Command+Shift+`
which is an activity distinct from switching application.
As it stands now, I feel that the Window menu is a bit too buried in the View menu.
A main menu entry Windows could be considered.
Some keyboard shortcuts to switch windows could be quite useful but the problem is going
to be to find shortcuts that will operate on all systems. Ctrl+1 etc seems logical but
won't work on Mac OS X Leopard and Snow Leopard because of Spaces. Of course, Alt+Tab
is always available but that switches between all open windows.
Ctrl+` to switch between Gretl windows only?
