I wanted my smart_enter.the macro to behave differently if shift+enter was used in the
filearea, but after EXTRACT /LASTKEY/, lastkey.4 shows just 10000000.

There were other problems reported about the shift bit not being set in 3.3b3,
but they were all closed 'fixed, next release'.

    Les, a couple of things...
    There is no S-ENTER capability in THE on windows. Run SHOW from the THE command line and press the key combinations you are trying. ENTER and shift-ENTER both produce ENTER in my environment. The enter key in the numeric keypad DOES produce different key sequences; NUMENTER and S_NUMENTER. They should be distinguishable in LASTKEY. How are you using EXTRACT /LASTKEY? Do you have a very small macro I could try here?
