Navision RTC Shortcuts vs Classic Shortcuts

Hi all, With new release of Role Tailored Client the major problem user & consultants faced is of the shortcuts. The shortcuts that we used till date for the classic client are behaving so wired when we try them on Role Tailored Client. Like Ctrl + F8 was used to zoom the line but nothing happens in Role Tailored Client. F3 was used to create a new record but cursor moves to filter field in Role Tailored Client. and many more. Yeah Ctrl + O still works in same way as it does in classic client. Now after release of NAV 7 / 2013 these shortcuts will not be used as classic client does not exist, so i started learning new shortcuts. While learning these shortcuts i figured out a pattern that these shortcuts are similar to that of any windows application. As for a new document we used Ctrl + N in Microsoft word and excel, new navision RTC shortcuts are similar to these. so lets study and make our work easy by learning these shortcuts. The list of shortcuts can be found

Hi all, while connecting to RTC and we have multiple services we find mutiple URL for the service to connect in the window of select server. Lets see how we can remove the list.

Delete the value from the URLHistory and yes that it, the list will be removed. I hope you will find the soultion usefull. Thanks & Regards, Saurav Dhyani

Multiple RTC on Same Machine with Startup Error Resolved

Hi all, I was just thinking that there should an way that when we start an different RTC Client that is not installed in machine, we should not get an error. If you haven't read the post how to do it then go to the link . Why it happens - Role Tailored Client try's to pull up the last service that have been used successfully to connect. As in earlier post we created multiple services for multiple versions and every service is running. So how the RTC client will figure out which service to run when we click on shortcut of a particular version RTC.
