Re: SoftStep Nav Keys

Thanks Jeff his problem is precisely the problem I am having, so it's good 
to read that thread.

Not sure his solution will work for me, I'm not a Bidule guy, but in the 
words of Robert Palmer - I'm looking for clues :)

Hopefully will find some in there - thanks !

Phil :)
