I'm as surprised as you that anyone would prefer QuickEdit over mouse functions. Kudos to Liviu and others for strict usage of the keyboard! ;-)

Makes sense then to disable QuickEdit unless /M is used. No telling how many potential new users were turned off when they discovered the mouse didn't work.

Too late for .192, but I suggest adding a line like the following to the next BETA.TXT:

  • Change- Shortcut QuickEdit disabled if /M command-line option not used

    Also, Help file section 3.11 should be revised.
    Suggest replacing the second paragraph "In order to use..." with:

    The Windows shortcut QuickEdit Mode is automatically disabled unless the
    /M command-line option is specified.

    Then delete the fourth paragraph "If you do not wish to use..."

    And in section 3.12, replace paragraph "If you intend to use..." with:

    If you intend to use the Windows shortcut QuickEdit Mode instead of normal
    mouse functions, you must specify the /M command-line option.
