    Turn off Enter Forms in v6 Reply

    Does anyone know how to turn off the visibility of the Enter Forms for common functions in Virtuoso v6?

    For example, the stretch, move, copy, etc commands under the Edit menu, whether called by the pulldown or by bindkey, popup an Enter Form that I only saw in v5 by using the F3 key.

    Is there a setting that controls the visibility of this form by default so I can keep the form from automatically popping up when I am executing simple, common commands frequently?

    This is a choice on Options->User Preferences, called "Show Options Forms when commands start". The default is "nil" in both IC5141 and IC615, so I can only imagine that something in your IC615 has turned it on.

    The cdsenv setting to turn it off from SKILL would be:

    envSetVal("ui" "showOptionForms" 'boolean nil)

    In the distant past this distinction used to be called expert/novice mode (but that was many, many moons ago, I think).

    Regards,

    Andrew.
