Subject: RE: Configurable F1 menu
From: Dennis Lui (
Date: 2004-02-21

Here are my two cents on the topic....

Not sure if this was every suggested, but I just got my JBR20 v2, and
think it would be nice if you could access the playlist functions (ie.
Insert, queue) by simply pressing either F2 or F3. I've found that I
basically have no use at all for the default F2 or F3 menues

Actually, it would waste memory. Most extra configurability does that.

I haven't really seen any requests for configurable F1 menu. What I've
seen is some people wanting some functions easily reachable in a
configurable quick-access screen/menu. And this is precisely what F2 is
intended to solve in the NEWKEYS document:
