    Cool XDPX - Function Calls List

    i have been working on all the key, presseses, menu selections and context menus that I can find in XDPXv16.3 as it annoys me this information is not easily accessible for all.

    As it is a work in progress, it has errors and omissions but if you are kind, you can advise me of these and I will try to add to the corpus.

    It is sitting in http://acorn.xara.hosting/index.htm at present with a linked Change Request Form at http://acorn.xara.hosting/changerequests.htm.

    I am using Google Sheets at present but a major limitation is the table loses its filtering and sorting when published to the web.

    I have been finding out lots of little gems and a fair bit of dross.
    I hope it works for you.

    As I rework the data, it will probably change in is presentation.
    One thing I won't do is use any of Xara's Smart Tables. I am hoping it will become pure HTML and have an external data source.

    Thank you. Its worth comes with being able to sort and filter as you can then see duplicates, patterns, overloads and things you weren't aware of.

    As I use the application frequently I keep on discovering nuggets that make the list effort worthwhile as keeping them all in your head is next to impossible.

    For example, scroll down and read up on Key > L: there are 7 actions, two of which I have yet to understand...

    ... if you know or use then Post an answer or use the Change Request Form.

    When you first posted, Acorn, I only had time to give your project a cursory look. Today I had the opportunity to look at it more closely. I won’t even pretend to know what some of the information means, but that’s just because of my limited use of the software. Maybe it will expand my horizons. I repeat that this is a great work and will be a big help for anyone who wants a succinct aid when using Xara.

    Again, thank you. I am updating and adding to it daily and I hope I get the time to weaponize it better.

    Partially "weaponized" at http://acorn.xara.hosting/weaponized.htm.

    No direct link on the site as I want to work on this page.

    Basically, type any fragment into the search box and / or order the column headings to drill into a topic.
