Based on shortcuts for RTC F8 has changed to CTRL+R

But it doesn't work on journals or sales order lines.

Is F8 feature being added or fixed?

    Unfortunately F8 (or Ctrl+R) didn't make it in NAV 2009 - but there has been some confusion as to whether we could get it in.
    It is definitely something we are looking into adding as soon as possible - probably in a SP or like.

    It would be a HUGE thing to have it, and to have it as a single key. F8 is probably one of the most used key in heavy data entry.

    Arrow down, F8, arrow down, F8, etc. is MUCH MUCH easier than arrow down, Ctrl+r, arrow down, Ctrl+R. It is much MUCH slower, and it is very prone to errors because when you do Ctrl+arrow down you move to another part of the form, or when you arrow down, forget to press Ctrl, you replace a field value with 'R'. Single key please [-o<

    The lack of attention to heavy data entry peoples' need for easy keyboard navigation is one of the things that I am very disappointed in with the RTC. I am concerned that heavy data entry is going to be too difficult. I know that users will find a way to use the system, and I might be a bit too pessimistic, so let's hope I'm wrong :mrgreen:

    Can't imagine not having F8, it is by far the most used short cut key for us.

    F8 is already used for Create new or insert record in the new client.

    To change the focus to the filter button that is ontop of the list.

    Yep, it's going to be a serious adaptation for the Keyboard-lovers amongst us :|
