Support Forum » Hotkey in Programmers Notepad

So I was surfing on SparkFun.com and came across this programmer. As I was reading the description, I found "You can setup a tool and hotkey in Programmers Notepad to do this automatically."

My question is: Can this be done with AVRDUDE and the software that came with my NerdKit? It might not save a ton of time but being able to program the 168/328 without having to open a command prompt seems a more convenient to me. I looked over programmer's notepad quickly without finding anything.

Has anybody used this feature of Programmer's notepad and if so can you share how you set it up please?

You can already do this, just select tools, Make All.

OK, that sounds great! What happens if I have more than one file open, say the trafficlight.c and the tempsensor.c program? Will it make the one I have active?

Thanks again Rick_S!
