MAPKEYS w/ pause for text


New member
Hi everybody-

I am trying to creating an extensive mapkey. I am running into problems when I need to insert text. Part of the maykey I am creating involves opening a new part. I want to be able to type in the part name, like I do everytime, instead of creating the part with the default name, "prt0001", and then renaming the part aftwerwards. It's not that big of a problem to do this, but I would prefer not to.

Am I missing something here?
