On April 7 we hosted a webinar “How to Optimize Adept for Remote Access”. It was truly wonderful to see so many of you online. The time we spend together –even remote-- is truly precious to me. It softens the isolation and sense of lonesomeness.
I am working with our product and services teams to create more educational content to share with all of you. We’ve already scheduled our next webinar for May 7 at 2:00 pm EDT. It’s focused on how to maximize performance in Adept. You can register here.
In the meantime, here are some other helpful links:
And here’s a PDF with step-by-step instructions for using Adept from a remote location.
“We can do this together.”
I never tire of reading these five words. It’s a global message of love, kindness and caring that we can lean into during these rough times.
Stay safe. Be well.
Can we get at least some limited visibility to what has been reported as defects? I'll sign an NDA if necessary to get access to that sort of information if it's easily searchable and filterable by the release.
This falls into the "Tips" section.
When using the Adept Desktop - we switched from a "menu" system to a "ribbon" system. One frustrating problem that I've had with ribbon systems is it's sometimes hard to find the command you are looking for.
To solve this problem, I wrote a command search tool that folks like, once they discover it. To find it I right click on the blank area of the ribbon top left. You can also find it by clicking on the oval drop down menu at the top right of the UI.
Invoking the tool you are presented with a more or less empty dialog box. If you try typing part of the command name, however, you'll see a list of commands that have part of the text you typed in their name somewhere. For example, if I type "copy" then I see seven commands listed.
Single clicking on one of those commands will cause the ribbon to change to show you the tab the command is on. The label for the panel and button name is in the dialog so you can visually locate the button.
In addition, when you single click - the large button on the dialog is enabled with the text "Execute" and if you click execute (or just double click the command name in the list) the command is immediately executed - no more action required.
One could say you could almost just use this single command search for all the UI for the desktop. No need to ever click through the available tabs.
