I'm sure it's in there - and I'm even sure Paul tried to look .....
don't assume it's as easy as it might seem with the benefit of
knowledge/hindsight/intuition that makes you pick the right phrase.
Here's what I did ....
... launching Rev,. click Documentation...
... flip option to Search ...., enter "keypress"
wait for approx 2 minutes while it spins that stupid little cursor ....
get about 10 entries .... none of which is keyDown or keyUp
(though the 7th entry would (if I hadn't given up by then) have referred
me to keyDown in the "See also ..." list.)
