Tank you John!

Yesterday someone told me something like that, but I understood
then that "control down" was  Ctrl + arrow down  !  And I hadn't
either understood that   "Send control down" meant holding the key
control down !   Thanx for the precision, it's working all right.
Actually, I've been reading more closely the documentation and
finally found it by the time you just before I read your answer.

Thanx a lot
