    Hi Jeff,

    I know I should know better by now, but instinctively, when I want to print a report that I've generated, I try to press Ctrl-P, since that's pretty much standard in all of Windows. But in BD, as you know, it's mapped to a Petey function (to play instructions for the current window). 

    I'm using Windows 7 (still) and I'm pretty sure I don't have whatever voice thingie that was such an issue years and years ago that was deprecated out of newer Windows versions. So I get this run time error as soon as I press Ctrl-P (and the program just terminates on the spot). 

    I don't know whether you can trap for that error so that if a user presses those keys and there's no functional Petey to load, it simply doesn't do anything - but that would be helpful. Or if there's some other way to work around this when the keys are pressed in error, I'm okay with that too.

    It's just that I know I will NEVER get used to "Alt-i" to print, given how many dozens of times a day I have to hit Ctrl-P. I'm not expecting you to change the key combos (though: is Petey still widely used enough to merit keeping the keystroke off-standard? I don't know which Windows versions have the component needed for him). But not crashing - that I could go for.

    Hi Kevin,

    Is it the Print/Preview window where you are pressing the Ctrl+P? Only here - or other places also?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    I'd only seen it in the Print/Preview window - but I just tried it with nothing open but the main program window (with the lifer bars showing in the background). Same error.

    Also tried it with a few other windows open (ie Edit Sightings) and get the same crash.

    That said: I tried enabling Petey, and that seemed to stop the problems (apparently I *do* have the speaking thing, at least in this windows version; I just had him disabled).

    I also disabled Petey again, and still didn't get a crash, and could toggle him enabled and disabled, hidden and visible, and Ctrl-P did not crash the program.

    But if I disable Petey, shut down the program and then restart with him disabled, Ctrl-P crashes the program.

    So the problem seems to be, if Petey is disabled when the program starts, and you press Ctrl-P, then it crashes. I prefer to have him off at all times, but if you can't trace the problem with this info, don't knock yourself out TOO hard trying to find it. I can work around it.

    Hi Kevin,

    Fixed in Build 53 and later. Ctrl+P opens Petey. But now you don't get an error.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Thanks Jeff! I can work with that.
