Seeing as we are asking questions ;)

Did you, as developers, make a conscious decsion not to include the standard "Control + Underline" shortcuts for menu options ?

I'm automating some repetitive\timed market adds and shortcuts would have made life a little easier

+1, and while you're at it, please fix the issue whereby inadvertantly hitting the close button on Guardian leaves the user with no way of changing his/her mind. A simple "Are you sure you want to close Guardian - Yes/No" will suffice.
Closing Guardian doesn't have any consequence, you can just click the G button to reopen it. All Automation continues to run regardless of whether Guardian is visible or not.
Thanks for the info - perhaps it was an earlier version which de-populated all nominated selections on Guardian closure, or perhaps repeated error on my part. Anyway, the 'Save As' request seems popular.

So what's the significance of the 'Do you want to save the Markets' check when closing Guardian … is that to save markets you are not running automation on?
That particular warning is very old (before Guardian even had Automation) and is really just asking if you want to save the list of markets that are in Guardian in case you were about to close the Bet Angel session completely. i.e. Save them for the next login to Bet Angel.
I suppose we could change the trigger for the message to only warn when you are exiting the entire session rather than just Guardian, it's just that we haven't touched that bit of code for a very long time.

BTW, the 'Save As' name preset was added into the beta 3 build this morning. It was a single line of code to change, so we snuck it in before the build.

Some of the menus have Alt+char shortcuts (the main screen and Guardian) but we don't tend to use the Control+Char shortcuts that much. We've tried not to use too many pre-built shortcuts now that we've got the shortcuts editor otherwise a lot of the letters would already be assigned to things.

Understood - that makes sense. Forgot about the BA shortcuts.
