    That will set it so it's always off. To turn it off 'for now', go to Edit -> Select -> preferences and uncheck the preselection highlighting box.

    mapkey $F1 @MAPKEY_LABELToggle Pre-Highlighting - F1;\
    mapkey(continued) ~ Select `main_dlg_cur` `MenuBar1`1 `Edit`;\
    mapkey(continued) ~ Select `main_dlg_cur` `Edit.cbSelect`;\
    mapkey(continued) ~ Close `main_dlg_cur` `Edit.cbSelect`;\
    mapkey(continued) ~ Select `main_dlg_cur` `Edit.cbSelect`;~ Close `main_dlg_cur` `MenuBar1`;\
    mapkey(continued) ~ Close `main_dlg_cur` `Edit.cbSelect`;\
    mapkey(continued) ~ Activate `main_dlg_cur` `psh_sel_filter`;\
    mapkey(continued) ~ Activate `selprefs` `PrehButton` ;~ Activate `selprefs` `Ok`;

    Thanks All, what is the best way to edit mapkeys ? the above string is to long ( or its just me ) for me to edit in the mapkey dialog box.

    Open your config.pro in a text editor lie Notepad and paste it at the end of the file and save it. You'll need to either restart Pro|E or reload your config.pro afterwards.

    Back in the day, we didn't have no fancy durned config and mapkey editor. We had to use a text editor, and we liked it!

    Back when Wildfire 2.0 came out I turned off the prehighlight feature using the config.pro I ended up turning it back on. From what I remember it lost some of the selection functionality and made other thing difficult to use. I can't remember exactly what it was, But i did change it back to prehightlight yes.

    Yes it does come in handy at time, hence the toggle.
