The D7 and D700 do not use pauses. When you change keys (in the
multi-press system), then that means you are moving on to the
next letter. If the next letter is on the same key, then you
press the right-shift button ("A" key) or the RIGHt Joystick
button. Now here is the amazing part. In the D710, kenwood
changed the right-shift function to the "C" key.
