Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we could not locate a copy of the manual for this switch.
However, the manuals we did find for Addlogix KVMs all specified a hot-key sequence of [SCRLK] + [SCRLK] + [(arrow up)] to select the next lower PC channel and [SCRLK] + [SCRLK] + [(arrow down)] to select the next higher PC channel. Auto Scan mode can be activated by [SCRLK] + [SCRLK] + [s] and specific ports can be selected by [SCRLK] + [SCRLK] + [(x)], where (x) represents a number key from the top row corresponding to the specific channel.
We hope these hot key sequences will work for you. There may be additional hot key functions, if we locate a manual or find more, we will update this post.
