Questions on keyboard shortcuts

SC support,

I noticed that Erase Drawing mode and Erase Single Drawing could be activated by simply pressing the delete button twice and once respectively. I looked through the website and could not confirm whether this is valid and I wonder if it is?

Also I want to know if there is a keyboard shortcut or title bar shortcut that could delete data. From what I read on the site there is not, but I want to make sure.

Thanks

SC support,

It has been two days and my questions are still left unanswered.

The documentation you are looking for is here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?l=doc/doc_Tools.html#ErasingChartDrawings

Saying "could delete data" is imprecise. We do not know specifically what you referring to. To configure keyboard shortcuts, refer to this section here:

Thank you for responding.

Erase Drawing Mode on the page you referred is activated by alt-5. I noticed it could be activated by pressing delete twice which is not on that page. Please verify.

I apologize for the imprecision. I wanted to know if there were any preset keyboard shortcuts or title bar shortcuts that would call any of the functions that Delete (All) and Download Data, Edit/Download Data, Adjust Data, call the Intraday Data Editor, etc.
I looked at my global settings and it does not seem to have any keyboard shortcuts for these (except I could not find Delete and Download Data which is accessed by right-clicking on a chart) but I want to make sure. Also I don't think that menu rules out the title bar shortcuts. I am not looking to add these, I am looking to avoid them if they are preset.


Thank you for all your help

Pressing the Delete key will temporarily activate Erase Drawing Mode and if you do it twice it will stay in that mode. This is not by design, it just happens to be that way due to the internal implementation of this.

There are no default keyboard shortcuts which will delete chart data.
