The responses to this question give clear evidence as which of us are
keyboard focused (adroit use of shortcut keys) and which of us are
screen focused (deft handling of pulldown menus, right mouse menus and
I may have said, for example, “use CTRL+E to get an explain plan” simply
because I am pretty lazy at times and it is easier than trying to
explain to someone who might have a different Toad GUI set up to the one
I use, where to find the “ambulance” button - and indeed, to describe
what an ambulance looks like - given that different countries may use
different vehicles as ambulances.
Equally, I still don’t quite understand what the relevance of an
ambulance is to explain plan!
Failing the above, taking a screen dump of the GUI, cropping out
everything except the ambulance button and pasting that into the email
is equally as “difficult”.
Nah, nothing to do with keyboard guru at all, I’m lazy!!!
In truth, sometimes I GUI, sometimes I keyboard. I alost never use a
right-click->edit->copy or paste when I can CTRL_C and CTRL+V but other
things I use the menu, I almost never CTRL+X for Cut. Strange!
