Re: [guide-user] inport the latest GCVS data in Guide 9.0

Bernd Klemt Jan 10, 2018

Hello Bob,

for me the hotkey "\" works fine. I use the latest Guide 9.1 version from
2017/07/10 and the new GCVS data set. Perhaps you should verify which short key
is assigned to "\".

Look at |Settings|Toolbar|Go to a variable star|. You find this entry rather at
the beginning of the long list in the middle of the whole bunch of "Go to" items.
There you can see what hotkey is actually in use. Of course you can also assign
another (unused) key to it.

Hope this helps.
