    Hi,

    After checking the slowdown in the Palm internals application when enabling/disabling shortcut5 I was wondering if there is anything that can be done to make the impact on performance a bit less when using shortcut5.

    Here is a article on the subject:

    I got around it on my 650 by installing the Palm Shortcut files (taken, I think, from a Tx) instead - they're available in a couple of posts here on TC; that gave me the standard Palm Shortcut editing facility and worked quite nicely.

    It almost works on the 680: self-created shortcuts will print out everywhere except password fields in Blazer.

    I have gotten used to using the . (dot) to enter my shortcuts and having to press S (alt) (alt) (alt) would take to long.

    I use the shortcuts to enter swedish chars. .a => .e => .o => etc.

    Hi Richard,

    The only way to reduce the overhead of ShortCut5 would be to rewrite the program to patch the system rather than to register for notifications. I have thought about doing this but I don't think the overhead is that great for most applications. Do you see any slowdown in the Memo or the SMS app when ShortCut5 is enabled? I don't.

    The performance impact of ShortCut5 would be the greatest with apps that generate a lot of events. These would typically be games, graphical apps, and benchmarks. And of course these are the same types of apps where you probably won't use ShortCut5. The apps where you would typically use ShortCut5, like Memo, Address, Datebook, Tasks, generate very few events.

    My suggestion would be to only enable ShortCut5 for the apps in which you really want to use it.
