Tip #053 – The Ctrl + End Combination Keystroke

Tip #053
The Ctrl + End  Combination Keystroke

Another nice trick to know is the Ctrl + End keystroke combination.  It will save you a lot of time when you want to erase the contents of a field.
This keystroke combination works the same way in all flowerSoft modules.

What does Ctrl + End do exactly?
Holding down the Ctrl key and then tapping the End key will erase the contents of the field from the cursor position.

For example, let’s say you have typed a line of instructions for your designer or a line on an enclosure card or anything else, and then you are not happy with it.
Simply arrow up to the line, go to the spot in the field where you want to erase from and instead of hitting the Space Bar or the Delete key to get rid of all the words. hit Ctrl + End.
Everything will be gone from the space the cursor location to the end of the field.

Tip #052 – Erasing a Line Item From an Order

Tip #052
Erasing a Line Item from an Order or
How to get rid of an item on an order

OK, so you are taking an order for a customer that is buying quite a few things…

and all of a sudden he or she says “You know what, let’s forget about the basket.”

What do you do to get rid of the item?
Well, what I see most of the time is the clerk arrow up to the item and then try to use the space bar to get rid of the line, but that will not work.
Why?  Because flowerSoft always defaults to a quantity of one, so if you space over the 1, flowerSoft just puts it back.
You can space over the item code, but you won’t be able to get rid of the item description either, even if you know about the (next tip) Ctrl + End keystroke combination.
So you get more and more frustrated about your inability to get rid of the item, but you shouldn’t really because there is a very simple way to accomplish what you are trying to do.

The easy way to get rid of the line is to simply enter a zero in the quantity field and hit Enter.

Viola!  The item is gone and the subtotal reflects the correct new amount.
