Apple Version dbisqlg, where is the menu shortcut F9? It's annoying to have to select the menu to execute SQL that is highlighted.

What version of SQL Anywhere are you using?

(28 May '13, 09:00) Mark Culp

12.0.1.3873

Sorry my Apple version is 12.01.3901.

OS X has predefined functions assigned to the function keys (F1..F12). In general, applications cannot use these keys for application-specific functionality.

That said, we can assign a different shortcut key to the menu (e.g. Ctrl+some letter). Would that make things easier for you?

Why does F5 work just fine?

If you are going to force me to write a sample application with xCode that uses the F9 key, I will.

Or better yet, I will write a java application.
