Problem: when a program is run with F2, and completes in the AOZ Viewer, the note at the bottom says:

Direct Mode

But pressing ESC makes this notice go away.

However, you can you press the Wizard icon to open Direct Mode anytime, but not with ESC.

To reproduce:

  1. A simple program: Print "Hello"
  2. F2 to run in AOZ Viewer
  3. Notice: End of program at line 1 Direct Mode
  4. Press Esc
  5. Notice clears but direct mode does not appear.
  6. Click the wizard icon and direct mode appears.

Verified, this is a problem.

Further information:

ESC is supposed to work as it did in AMOS:

  1. If you're in the Editor and you hit ESC,
    it's supposed to go to Direct Mode.

  2. If you're in Direct Mode and you hit ESC,
    it's supposed to go back to the Editor.

Finally fixed! No easy as keyboard message come to multiples places, yet it seems to work.
ESCAPE in the editor-> open direct mode
ESCAPE in direct mode -> go back tot he editor

ESCAPE when a program ends-> open direct mode
RETURN when a progrqam end-> go back to editor

Now to accelerate transpilation when going into direct mode (and add screen sliding? ;) and we will be just as comfortable as in AMOS...
