Lets say you have a form and on that form, you have a pageframe, and in that pageframe you have a container and in that container you have a grid ... Now lets say that you need to modify a property of a control located somewhere in the bowels of that form. The standard way to get to that control is to right click and then select edit from the popup menu. Now you right click that container object and select edit from the popup menu. If your control is buried deep within several layers of container objects, it can take a while to get to the object that you want.

There is a faster and far simpler way. Hold down the Ctrl key and left click your way down to the object you want. Each Ctrl+Click is the equivalent of a right click then edit.

You should properly post this question in the forum as it has very little to do with the FAQ above. In answer though, it is likely that the barcode font is not present on that other computer. You will need to include it in your install procedure.

Ok, now try CTRL+ALT+Shift ... see what that does ...
Not a joke.
