IB version 740.1 problem

    The newest version has added a keystroke for entering limit orders.

    In the previous versions, if you wanted to enter a "buy limit order" you could do the following: (the quickest way)

    1) click on the ask
    2) then use you hot key (PRICE LOWER) to adjust the price lower
    3) then click your transmit hot key

    Now if you try the same thing with the new version, you will get an error on step #2

    With the new version you have to:

    1) click on the ask
    2) then click on the same line under either the Underlying, Exch or Description columns (otherwise trying to use hot keys immediately will screw up the price)
    3) then use your hot key to adjust price lower
    4) then you would use your hot key to transmit order

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    I have the identical problem. Without an additional mouse click on order line, either the price (on buys) or volume (on sells) hot key will not work.

    This becomes annoying if rapid order entry is required.

    IB is aware of the problem and will be fixing it right away.
