post is long enough but in short, the main feature of the upgrade is the ability to set run actions for your word processing files (or any other, though it was put together in part to a geany-vtg type start center). from the comments on a picture in a folder in my repo:

another use for the mcc (make concurrent copies) function is assigning text files to pairs of programs (browser-text editor) by having the copies carry an extension that will set them apart from everything else. right click in rox to set both a run action (pick something from the duals folder, to continue on the word processing bent, though that's not strictly necessary) and icon. screen shot shows...

Subject description: untested but i think it will work. am i overlooking something?


had the names on the icons wrong for one thing (left out a -x), but that method of setting them works so inconsistently (or i confused something by repeatedly swapping back and forth so many times) i ended up putting an alt-icons folder in usr//share/applications just so i could easily right-click assign them--it's a useless part of the script. Laughing

maybe messing with that /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/globicons file is a better way?(

anyway, i used it in a pinstall script for a pet that was making most of a remaster and the copies all have the four extensions register as unique entities that can get their own programs and icon assignments (which is cool/i'm over the disappointment and inconvenience). Very Happy

Quote:

that emboldened bit of gibberish was meant to say "as an alternative to a geany-vtg type start center." (any of the dual launcher codes prefacing a list of files will open them up in both a browser and editor. other than dragging and dropping files or groups of files onto the scripts or their .desktop representations, this seemed like the easiest way to process words (so to speak, so to speak) with the anuupuus (Word Processor (U..)Utilities Suite). now you get another way and some (i think) relatively nifty icons.

will have a bug fix pet to get rid of the ghost drives on the alternate pinboards and fix up the edit store port scripts (for now, don't use--just had the edpin wig out geany...---had to actually reboot to get out of the loop actually. lost a post and everything.)



there's no reason to issue a pet fix for the edpin problem--just use the auxiliary launchers or built-in keycuts to fix it. method one: main launcher (shift+spacebar), gl (opens the file in geany; use ll if you want to open the file in leafpad), enter, edpin, enter.

this opens up "edpin" for editing (if the file didn't exist, it would make a blank file with that name for you to save in the location of choice--gl and ll are word processing functions at least as much as configuration and maintenance tools) and presents

Code:

#!/bin/sh
geany /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/Pup*
/nwp/edpin
 


to fix it, add a pound sign to or delete the last line, making it
Code:

#!/bin/sh
geany /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/Pup*
#/nwp/edpin #--this was supposed to have been commented out
 


had i just left the /nwp/part off (comment mark would've made it the title), no real harm would've been done--it would've just made a file called "edpin" that had no set location for its contentlessness (beyond /root/edpin--root seems to be geany's default location for files made this way. the ones you create through the file > new dialog i believe get made in /tmp...). as it stood, the file as command continually reactivated itself as the last step. comment makes it back into a tile, and brings up another error, this time in documentation.

maybe i was still in shock at having to reboot (such a simple script (when done right) and geany is normally so reliable...), but i should've pointed out that the bare dual launcher codes need to be prefaced with their full path (/nwp/) because the codes aren't part of the PATH (those that are can be bare. i.e. geany -i /root/1 /etc/2 will open up those files when you activate the vtg (either through the keyboard (alt+z), the menus (vtg or the cauliflower), the tray (cauliflower)...)). so, for example, if you want geany and pale moon to open the files, use

Code:
/nwp/gp /path/to/file /path(s)/to/file(s)


Quote:

method one: main launcher (shift+spacebar), gl (opens the file in geany; use ll if you want to open the file in leafpad), enter, edpin, enter.

Quote:
modifier(s)=Alt KEY=h -- /nwp/k
modifier(s)=Alt KEY=j -- /nwp/rl
modifier(s)=Alt KEY=k -- /nwp/gl
modifier(s)=Alt KEY=l -- /nwp/ll



default shortcuts for most recent spins/nwps use the above, so method two is alt+k (or l, if if you want the file opened in leafpad), add the pound sign, save. that will fix the script so that "edpin" in the launcher opens up the six new pins. (index finger gets k for key launcher because i at one time believed it would see more use, or, if used at all, would be used somewhat heavily). if you want driveless pins, or more control over their placement than normally holds in Puppy, look for the bit that has "args" in it. those are your drive icons (i.e. <icon x="32" y="836" label="sda1" args="drive ext4">/root/.pup_event/drive_sda1</icon>)

delete the lot for driveless, copy your extant set over from PuppyPin (no extra number) to have it on each of the alternate pins. since they are now frozen with the text file, they'll remain in (odd, if you so choose) position(s) even after the auto redrawing of icons that occurs at boot and X restarts.

if you want to automount all your drives, you could drag musher0's monter5 script out of quar in Startup. since alt plus spacebar is root, one of the first things i do on a new install is activate that shortcut, then navigate to startup adn /my-applications/bin and make those (by use of ctrl plus number) rox speed dials 2 and 3. if you want to automount at a click and your discretion, leave monter5 in /quar (alt+t spacebar then 2 to get to its parent folder if you followed the quick links howto above).

rox is cool. Very Happy

(rl, the last launcher in that bank, is rox opened at /nwp/--the short names of the mostly blank directories are to provide quick cover for you and your creations--d plus enter in that one gets you a blank directory, nwp's version of My Documents, my-documents (though there's also a "docs"), etc).

have fun with it.
Very Happy



not sure if this will help clarify things, or from where you need to enter the discussion to be in need of clarification, but this update and bugfix also seems to me to be a howto and an explanation of some more of the nwp's features.

further, while it does get documents created and saved and arguably sorted and stored, and all very quickly, the formatting is best kept for pasting into more proper word processors like google docs, libreoffice, or even notecase (which can also export to html (and therefore pdf)). the print view will give you a scalable interface, but lately isn't heeding the viewport, at least not in 64 bit. haven't tested on 32 bit lately, but it doesn't seem to work as consistently (is it a browser issue?) as i remembered. for my own use, i use the nwp((as in (A NWP/A NWPUS) primarily for document creation and modification and the utilities side of things. if i need to edit more formally, i paste into libre or google. i'll make a return to the minimal versions (under 50k) in a release or two, but these last two are relatively monstrous--14mb. there may be a weight reduction pet in the future to reduce this--there's some redundant documentation and many icons that can be autogenerated if needed...)
the newer tiny noop will be in at least two versions, both smaller than the original: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=860360#860360. i'm thinking at least one version should incorporate the new Quasi-Proprietary File Type feature, possibly as an offshoot of the mcc (make concurrent copies) feature.

mcc: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=902287#902287 (attachment at the end shows it being used for this purpose)




32/64.4 pet puts the alt-icons folder in your usr/share/applications diretory. it contains the drag and drop dual launchers for word processing use and some icons--right click a file to which you added one of those extensions (pwn, pwp, sans, ser, def3, def4, mons, mon...) to set an icon and run action for it. you've got four new categories, none of which have to be actually set for word processor use.
Quote:




the six choices (pp1-6 in the launcher) are really the same 2 three times each. one's more minimal and the other's got some tools useful for getting you first set up, though it's hard for me to say which i'd choose to mod--easier to drag to one or delete from the other...

shown are some of the suggested icons for the word processor (or libre--i actually prefer that odt icon to the regular one as it sets it apart from the docx files better). [...]

nwp64.5

geany32+some3264deps.tar.xz

.5 has geany1.25 and plugins for both 127 and 125 (a few 32 bit, a few 64 bit). .6 makes that stuff a separate package (the .xz above). [...] reduced size is mostly from the removal of the redundant (nwp.5) geany packages and some uneeded documentation (nwp appears to work in Slacko as of the 700 release (pretty sure it would work on 5.7 and below but i've never tested it) so i ditched some of the workarounds for the 6 series--it's still there, just not as often)[...]

still in the air--haven't yet played around with focuswriter or ted, but if i include a word processor beyond the nwp/vtg combo and what notecase can do (export to html, which your browser can then save as pdf) or what google docs (haven't tried the apparently chrome/chromium-based only sync feature yet, but it's one of the reasons i'm thinking of keeping a big browser as default in the precise spins) or other online services provide, my first pick would likely be the former (i.e. if it includes ted i failed to get focuswriter working without the 32bit compatibility pack).

the only real way to further develop the word processing capabilities would be to use css and make something along the lines of http://alistapart.com/article/boom

i just wanted the look and feel of what an rtf processor like RoughDraft (http://www.salsbury.f2s.com/) does in windows (works in linux with wine but the interface is somewhat similar to geany's (which can do tabs and splits, so why the entire environment for the 3k proggie)--all the formatting and hype (so to type) are unnecessary--three fonts, a few sizes, italics, bold, underline, strikethrough--holy crap, this [stuff] can do links and tee oh cees with ease--and suddenly i'm not completely ignorant of code, and even have picked up a little html knowledge (mostly from [messing] around with joe's windows manager, which kind of gives you the gist and the knowledge makes your environment more livable, personalized, arguably efficient as you learn and get comfortable--

so yeah, i can't code for [beans] really--which is the point. it's not as alien and horrific as you might first think--"geany open these things" is like texting the most agreeable friend you have, and it's code: geany /here/smyfile,son

(that would open up "smyfile,son" if you had it in a folder named "here"--it'd make the file if it didn't exist but the folder did, and it would cock its head and balk if you asked it to make the file in a folder that didn't exist (although elsewhere that would be considered its unique name--location plus name is name plus, sorta.

i think i'm done with .5, but there was never supposed to be the forgotten things, but it's nice to have an installation pretty much the way i want it in a click and a two minute wait (idea is you customize your nwp and reap the same benefits. for word processing--well, i'll leave that for your processing.).

newest nwp (will) have some custom pinboards preset (see threads for screenies), but mostly it's just bugfixes--Winswitcher had the wrong code assigned its key (which is ctrl plus spacebar) in all seven key configs, edpin was a loop rather than a help, cr didn't work in 64bit (none of the close all scripts do but this. now.), but now it closes all rox windows and the blue-green X on the trays and menus should work…


it's excellent with file generation and navigation, the utilities side works almost without fail in both in both 32and64 (64 doesn't like some wmctrl commands and there are bugs i'm sure i've not yet found)--and you could do cut up stuff with the rectangular select feature.

if (that enclosed by) "div" (tags) could take formatting i'd be done with this thing…

____

...i think it was div--gave me a reshapable box i could drag around the screen to resize margins, but no formatting--and remembering "here's a break, a carriage return"--not a happy realization that i'm old enough to remember carriage returns.


anyway, through no fault of my own, some progress has been made on the slacko front (and in celebration i deleted half the workaround documentation for the 6 series--most of it's still there in jaewm!1 documentation (in /nwp/c, i think--notecase file (which can be natively formatted and exported to pdf, more or less obviating my word processing efforts, at least word processor wise))). so, as of the 700 series, the nwp works, or at least it did when i tested in the 64bit version. only deps were xdotool and yad from the ppm, and the only glitch appears to be with theming--pop ups don't change the settings--maybe you have to "my39" it to get back the default interface, change colors and such, then my1 back into the nwp interface (by verbing the my command i mean entering that in the main launcher (though preceding it with /nwp/ will allow it to be called from the terminal...ctrl plus d closes the terminal (almost four years of playing around with linux and i found that out about two weeks ago).

clicking the install script will give you a popup asking you if you want to install each item. the remove script just empties its respective folder of the pets.

it is what it does, so see launcher shortcuts and keyboard shortcuts for (perhaps) a better idea.



(barring that, it uses short commands, the keys, screen artifacts (stuff you click or activate with a mouse or finger), and/or popup menus to launch files, programs, text strings, commands (including resizing, moving, and/or reshaping windows) or mimic the menus (or select aspects thereof arranged to your tastes) of more or less any programs you choose, in a way better suited to you and your habits than stock/default…---; use a minimalistic or limited text editor plus a browser as a full word processor, have nine more menus than most stock jwm pup setups, and for my part, i'd so much rather have it than not that i document all the changes i make to it and make sure it's available to me as soon as i fire up a new pup (often i use woofy to install it before i actually boot a pup for the first time, which is incidentally the original reason for the external pet installs--don's right click package and Whitesnow's (oops, thanks, Whitesnow--big omission (now fixed)--your dropbox package is awesome--been using it for pretty much as long as i've been using puppy/linux--it's much better than what i tried to put together for megasync (though, granted, you know what you're doing and i'm a noob (NWP--Noob's Word Processor/Ultimatesque Utility Pack)) mydbox require choices that are better left unautomated; this will turn out to be easier to upgrade for future builds anyway so no real setback...)--so much for brevity.

[...]

the custom root2 menu (exists also as a submenu/sample template on 0 and 9) requires some additional plugins over base pup. i mostly use geany 125 and 127, the latter my only 32 bit version going at the moment. the folders containing the geany plugins (and/or geany; upgrade precise (this and the 125 plugins courtesy of Corvus) from 123 to 125, which is why the 32 version is so much larger) contain scripts similar to those for the rec'd pet installs:

yet to be addressed:

alternate file system and navigation in general (keep out of root, make it easier to find and link to your stuff across pups)
the virtual keypad(s) (relates in part back to the custom program menus on some of the jwm and aemenu popus…)
settings, file, and config porting/backup (see /nwp/pet folder, the links above, or the main support thread for more. there's also a bit of it now as part of the rox right click menu.)
panel frame and pinboard switching
the vtg (part of the nwp (noop) installation. link is (was) to
Geany as Launcher, Bookmarks Manager, and Word Processor
open programs, files, folders and web sites; reshape and resize windows; process words
)
lpx...
(...no point in making this as long as the support threads--launcher shortcuts file explains much of it and keyboard and menu config files are heavily commented)...

[...]

add/remove packages and alter the install script to reflect custom choices for future installations (or delete the whole thing when you're done. sometimes it's convenient, sometimes it's not. usually a combo).
[...]


other known issues: the wmctrl close all instances scripts don't work in 64bit, two or three tray settings could use some tweaking (will be part of the update script from .6 (6t4 plus update1) to .9)...you may have to reinstall xdotool through your PPM if using 64 bit (generally if alt+arrow squirts your window across the screen, the xdotool that came over with the pet's okay. next step would be to test some of the autotext scripts in the launcher (i usually test with scz ("make this text file a script", i.e. it autotexts out (tada! (if you're watching me write this live)) #!/bin/sh) in the launcher)).


seems i forgot to add woofy to the recs as well:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=429229#429229
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByUDhE3nQF8uekx4UXEwVTlJTE0/view?usp=sharing

(woofy-0.91.pet mirrored in the mostly_common_32 folder/thanks to sc0ttman)


i had been manually adding the configs, folders, and files that comprise the nwp pets, then resquashing the file system, but it turns out making pets and then installing them through woofy is for the most part easier (same goes for manually reconfiguring a running pup--using pets for the new files and configs (and optionally activating what's generally just a few simple copy and backup scripts--the pinstall.sh(punistall.sh) script(s) and whatever, if anything, it (they) call (calls--last of parentheticalling out the uninstall part of the combo--good practice suggests you fill it with the countermeasures to your install script and pet installation, but i view the nwp as concrete with regards to its place in respins so am a bit remiss with this, the rather large (and apparently functioning) uninstall scripts circa nwp32/64.4 that you can find in the main nwp thread (and postdated pets) notwithstanding) is easier than repeating the process for each installation/update).

only changes since the last batch are an update of the elp help file and the following two lines added to the pinstall scripts (that activate after the pet installation moves in the files you're adding to your system):
Code:

Code:
cp -f /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal /nwp/root3/root39menu/jwmrc-personal
cp -f /etc/xdg/templates/_root_.jwmrc /nwp/root3/root39menu/_root_.jwmrc   



these lines make your current jwm configuration (current as of the time of this nwp.pet install) your my39 quickswitch (i.e. "my39" in the launcher activates that particular set of configuration files); my39r reverses it, but only to the previous configuration. this is to say, installing, playing around with the configuration switches, and then getting back to your preinstall config while leaving the rest of the functions in tact may lead to some unfortunate backtracking--making the originals a quickswitch avoids any headaches and brings up a point about customizing your own (or sets of your own) wm features--anything you do to the contents of the root#menus folders in /nwp/root3 and their associated files will stick as a quickswitch and the feature mod (the tray, key, and menu config files for the nine extra menus (x3), the 6 keycentric configs, the thirty or so trays are all there) will be a part of the swapped in customizations, but you must mod the files in nwp/root3/, not the ones in their system-active places in root/.jwm and /etc/xdg/templates to make them portable (though you could always run the above two lines adjusted to the destination folder of your choice (or drag and drop manually--rl in the launcher then c gets you there...there's a keycut...my guess is alt plus j...(woo hoo)(rung is h for keys launcher, j for rox launcher, k for geany, l for leafpad)...---make changes, restart jwm to see if you like them, copy them to those folders in nwp/root3 if you want to make them swappable. the new menus on scroll up and down and mae (ae menu launched by that code in main launcher) have the quickswitches plus links to edit or activate the keys, trays, menus, etc. you can edit the files to include menus from elsewhere, but all the presets are fed from that folder. make a file of the above repeated for menus30-49 and you could vtg in your current settings at any time with a click of the cauliflower (etc).

(installation and removal still as above). 64 bit does all the tweaks automatically, 32 bit has you activate the geany and rox tweaks separately.)

eventually i became familiar enough with Puppy Linux that hours of customization and tinkering became portable and one click installable--most of the delays with spin making come from keeping the system generic enough to (re)offer the public (the nwp is the approximatic). anyway, here's a link to the main, as yet unupdated nwp (A Noob's Word Processor/Ultimatesque Utilities (UU/W) Pack(/NWP/nwp/noop/anubis/anuupus/,etc)) thread:

posts starting midway down the previous page give a decent overview (including the launcher and keyboard codes minus what's mentioned at the start of this document):

will update the quick links and repost the updated launcher codes and keyboard stuff before the next release. new nwp cleans up the left click menu the same as the earlier firefox pet. when nwp.9 comes out i'll offer a patch pet for whatever the last version of 6t4 is at the time (other spins should just (back up your customizations or personal files first) reinstall the newer nwp over the older one (your old nwp configs will get ported by the new one, but personal files stored in the nwp file system should probably be petted or otherwise backed up when installing a new one. same goes for any scripts you've altered).



renaming the old nwp directory before petting in the new one is probably the fastest and easiest way to preserve your customizations (if there are many, the fastest and easiest way is probably to pet them back over the incoming rewrites (/nwp/pets, the rox right menu, and the mae menu have options for doing this).

more keyboard fun:

Cherry lost its patent on the mx mechanical keyboard switches in 2014 (or so i think i remember reading), and now you can pick up knockoffs pretty cheap--if the tenkeyless brown switch item i just got for 24 bucks shipped is any indication, they're way better than what normally comes with the machine.

anyway, dump the code below in a terminal to get the cap locks button made into an additional control button, the scroll lock button turned into a caps lock button, and a file set up for you to add to /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal in case you want to use the pause break button for up to 16 functions (i suppose you could make one function pause break and another scroll lock--don't think i've ever used either of those).

Code:
echo $'! backup your original map with xmodmap -pke > root/xmodmap-original.
! run xmodmap /root/xmodmap-original to undo the changes.
! move capslock to scroll lock and make the original capslock ctrl:
remove Lock = Caps_Lock
remove Control = Control_L
keycode 78 = Caps_Lock
keycode 66 = Control_L
add Lock = Caps_Lock
add Control = Control_L

' > /root/tklv1.xmodmap
echo $'#!/bin/sh
xmodmap /root/tklv1.xmodmap
#scroll lock=caps lock, caps lock=control; modify 110 key (pause break) through your wm.
' > /root/Startup/xmodtkl
chmod 755 /root/Startup/xmodtkl
/root/Startup/xmodtkl

echo $'<JWM>
<!--
add Include line below to /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal

Key bindings 
on this tenkeyless Velocifire, Pau is keycode 110. some examples:-->

<Key keycode="110">exec:xdotool key alt+ctrl+shift+super+F16</Key>

' > /root/jwmpausekey


geany /root/jwmpausekey /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal in a terminal to open the keyfile and the file you're adding the "includes" line to.

-----

just tested it on a more typical 101 (or so--logitech cheapo model and i didn't count--almost always 101-104 keys if it's got a number pad) key keyboard--works just the same (scroll lock, caps lock, and pause break appear to be named fairly consistently so the xmodmap part of the code should work in most things. use xev to double check or find more keycodes)

if you're thinking of getting one, 84 key models usually rely on Fn to get scroll and pause--the xmodmap part should still work fine, but you may need an extra key press for the other stuff (or it may not work at all. still have a couple in the mail--will check eventually).

xmodmap changes will take place as soon as you run the code. to incorporate your pause key tweaks into the system, you must run jwm -restart (or click it from the menu).

enjoy.
Very Happy

(note: to get a backup of your current keymap, xmodmap -pke > /root/xmodmap-original. to activate it, xmodmap /root/xmodmap-original.)

code below adds "mou" as another launcher shortcut to a launcher--this one will allow you to move the mouse around with the keyboard--just enter the x and y coordinates separated by a space. i suggest the following added to /root/jwmrc.personal so that it and the mouse clicks are on the keyboard regardless of what keybank you swap in:
<Key mask="4" key="1">exec:xdotool click 1</Key>
<Key mask="4" key="2">exec:xdotool click 2</Key>
<Key mask="4" key="3">exec:xdotool click 3</Key>
<Key mask="4" key="4">exec:/nwp/mou</Key>



(none of the key shortcuts use the windows key by default iirc. you could also use some more of the space bar (though i think the above makes more sense, here:

<Key mask="4" key="space">exec:/nwp/mou</Key>
<Key mask="4A" key="space">exec:xdotool click 1</Key>
<Key mask="4C" key="space">exec:xdotool click 2</Key>
<Key mask="4S" key="space">exec:xdotool click 3</Key>



here's the code for the launcher and xmodmap files and scripts for the mini keyboards (dump into a terminal):


Code:
echo $'
#!/bin/sh
CMDLINE=$(yad --width=350 --skip-taskbar --center --on-top --fixed --sticky \
              --title="" --window-icon="/nwp/icons/purwup.png" \
              --entry --entry-label="Run command:"  \
              --column="command" --entry-text "xdotool mousemove ")
[ -z "$CMDLINE" ] && exit 0

$CMDLINE &
exit 0

' > /nwp/mous
# example: xdotool mousemove 110 550 click 1
echo $'
#!/bin/sh
/nwp/mous| xdotool sleep .3 key Right
' > /nwp/mou
chmod 755 /nwp/mou /nwp/mous

echo $'
#!/bin/sh
xmodmap /nwp/81.xmodmap
#scroll lock=caps lock, caps lock=control; modify 110 through wm.
' > /nwp/xmod81

echo $'
remove Lock = Caps_Lock
remove Control = Control_L
keycode 78 = Caps_Lock
keycode 66 = Control_L
add Lock = Caps_Lock
add Control = Control_L
keycode 129 = Menu
! fn + media player (F1) does nothing on my machine out of the box so that's the one i'm purposing
' > /nwp/81.xmodmap
chmod 755 /nwp/xmod81

echo $'
#!/bin/sh
xmodmap /nwp/81b.xmodmap
#scroll lock=caps lock, caps lock=control; modify 110 through wm.
' > /nwp/xmod81b

echo $'
remove Lock = Caps_Lock
keycode 78 = Caps_Lock
keycode 66 = Menu
add Lock = Caps_Lock
! caps lock becomes menu, scroll lock becomes caps lock
' > /nwp/81b.xmodmap
chmod 755 /nwp/xmod81b

echo $'
remove Lock = Num_Lock
remove Lock = Caps_Lock
remove Control = Control_L
keycode 78 = Caps_Lock
keycode 66 = Control_L
add Lock = Caps_Lock
add Control = Control_L
keycode 77 = Menu
! make numlock menu, caps lock control, scroll lock caps lock
' > /nwp/84.xmodmap

echo $'
#!/bin/sh
' > /nwp/xmod84
chmod 755 /nwp/xmod84

#cp -f nwp/xmod84 /root/Startup/xmod84
#cp -f nwp/xmod81 /root/Startup/xmod81
#cp -f nwp/xmod81b /root/Startup/xmod81b
#/root/Startup/xmod81b
#/root/Startup/xmod81
#/root/Startup/xmod84
#copy your xmod settings to startup and run



i couldn't get jwm to run "xdotool key Menu" from a key (works fine from a terminal), so to get it back on the abbreviated keyboards (most of my boards don't have it, just recently noticed it on a few, and have grown to like having it in a relatively short time), i opted for either the caps lock key, the number key, or a dead function key (the three variations above). next nwp will have this upgrade included.

win+1--click 1, win+2--click2, win+3--click3, win+4--mouse move launcher, mou in the launcher--mousemove launcher.
