It is not possible at the moment, but I will add it to the list of features to be reviewed for future software updates.

 

Frog Reference 5440 - Go action from external keyboard.

I would rather not have this feature personaly, I know of various people who have leant on the keyboard for a 520 (which has this feature) and mistakenly run a load of cues.

 

If it is added it should be able to be turned off!

ENTER would be a good key to use as it is available on small PS2 numeric keypads. The GO feature could be inhibited by turning on Scroll Lock.

As a whole keyboard is to big for me using it during running the show

(I like it while programming) I am thinking on buying a smal numberblock using for jumping to memories.

 

Please choose a Key which is available at the numberblock too.

 

:idea: Each Computer Game has a setup which allows to select keys who fits to the users best. Could this be done in a Frog Setup too?

Hello,

a GO function on ext. keyboard will be pretty good but a "selectable" GO will be perfect i.e. type in memory number on numbers block and press the enter key to GO !

I think this is possible becouse NUM Enter has another ASCII Key than Alpha Enter.

I have been using the fat frog and have found that the keyboard does very little, is this because i need a software update? :? If not i would like to suggest that you should be able to make cues GO using the keyboard and when naming items u should b able to type with the keyboard instead of the up down left right keys, one more thing is a mate of mine thinks in the next update u should be able to name the submaster pages :roll:

perhaps you need an update - you can definitely use the external keyboard for naming purposes

The keyboard issue has already been discussed a few times before. See the following for starters:

 

http://support.zero88.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=17

http://support.zero88.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=755

 

The ability to name things with the external keyboard has been in since about release 3. Bear in mind though that backspace and delete don't currently do anything!

 

The latest software is release 9.6, it's well worth updating your desk if it's not running this.

 

The naming of submaster pages has already been suggested:

since we can punch in the memory we want to go to and hit enter why not also have a GO on the external keyboard? SPACE bar, G key or something like that.

If this is still being looked at - why not the enter key for GO?

 

Maybe 30 Enter (then on the screen you can verify where your at ) then Enter again would make it GO

Am finding the "click" on the Fat Frog Go button too intrusive when operating in a Studio situation where the control area is not behind glass. Was the external keyboard 'Go' functionality ever implemented?

Keyboard GO functionality was implemented in version 9.8 software, full details are in the release notes HERE. Alternatively if you're handy with a soldering iron, you could wire up a quiet button of your choice to one of the remote switches on the DIN8 connector on the back of the desk.
