The context menus of objects are generally the same as the main window context menu....

The main EViews menu changes as you bring focus to different objects. Open the series, group, equation, etc. which you wish to work with then use the Alt's. They'll open the main menu, but those will be the menu items for the open object.

Dear Developers,

(I refer to Eviews 7)

Proposal: I would like to encourage you once again to think about hot key for action "estimate" (equations and VARs) and for action "Solve" (model objects). I believe the button F12 would fit the best. I checked - it's free at the moment in both Eviews 7 and 8 (or F3 as was proposed before).

Motivation: I just recently worked on thousands of ARIMA models + explanatory variables searching for Ad Hoc best specifications and found that we urgently need to speed up the process by accessing function "estimate" bit faster. Furthermore, opening estimate window it would be great to have ESC (Escape) button acting as dismissing or canceling "Estimate" window, meaning going back to Stats window.

Moreover: When equation window is opened and active, it's not straightforward to reach "Proc" button (and subsequently Specify/Estimate) as we would suppose to reach it by pressing ALT + P, because it leads to "Options". I didn't find fast hot key to "Proc" menu (also in Eviews 8 ). This is additional motivation to develop F12 as quick reference to "Estimate" menu window.

Thank you
Andrei

Definitely NOT in Eviews 7.
There are some continuous running features after interrupting current run in Eviews 8. But check out new features.
