I've known that one, but keep forgetting it because I don't use it much.
The one I've been using a lot is to fill with a particular percent (as
making the 100-patch patch, tho mine was only half that)... and it's a big
pain. When I grow some new brain cells I'm going to see if any of the 12
unused function keys came with this hellacious black keyboard can be
programmed for stuff like that. you sound like you know yr photoshop --
PS. The keyboard for G4 is uniquely heinous -- keys actually smaller &
closer together than on the old scuzzy keyboard, so you hit double keys
easier (by actual measure !) and that "stylish" black... much harder to
read, also glary, & the minute they get the least bit worn the letters
turn gray & disappear. Very smart. Apple stock is at 15....
