Feature Request: Remember last selected keyword

In the current beta, when you add a new keyword to your keyword list, that entry is then auto-selected in the master list so that you can quickly and easily edit it, remove it, or set its color.

This rocks...

Would it be possible to go a step further and make SecureCRT 'remember' the last selected or edited entry, and then auto select it the next time the dialog is opened?

Use Case: I have a lot of keywords and I make a lot of type-o's, it's a terrible combination. I'll add a RegEx keyword, hit OK to exit the dialogs, and then notice the color/syntax is wrong for the word I just added. I then need to re-open the keyword dialog, scroll down and find my entry, edit and repeat.

Clearly, not the end of the world. However, it would be a time saver if when I opened the keyword dialog, my last edited entry was already selected. I could then hit 'set color'/edit/remove immediately upon opening the keyword list properties dialog.

I'm not suggesting that the keyword be the active element on the dialog, just that it's selected. The "Word:" edit box would continue to be the initially active element.

*Click a keyword, and then click back up in the "Word:" edit box. Notice the previously selected word is light gray.... that's what I'm after. Even though the edit box is the active element, if I were to click 'set color', edit, or remove.. that action would happen upon the previously selected keyword.

Clear as mud?

Hi Casey,

Sure, I can see how that would be useful.

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database for the ability for the last entered entry in list to be selected when dialog is next opened (keyword highlighting). Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, contact support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #11583" in the subject line.
