Some dialogs cannot use narrow captions
(Thomas K., Oct 30, 2000)
Question:
Why don't some dialogs respect the Narrow Captions setting?
Answer:
The use of this option is not entirely legal in Windows and is reserved for floating toolbars. When narrow captions are used on modal dialog boxes, these may not show up on Alt+Tab list and make it difficult to switch between SuperMemo and other applications. This is why time-management options (task manager, Tools : Plan, etc.) do not use narrow captions


Trim Shortcuts turns off Ctrl+Alt+C and some other shortcuts
(Jiri Pik, Wed, Jun 27, 2001 8:44)
Question:
Why can I not use Ctrl+Alt+C shortcut for selecting the current category in SuperMemo 2000? In the previous releases it worked without any trouble?
Answer:
Make sure you have Trim Shortcuts in Tools : Options : SuperMemo unchecked. This shortcut can be inactivated to compensate for a bug in handling diacritical characters in some national versions of MS Windows
