    There are other, perhaps easier ways to accomplish this. The "=" key is a shortcut to add one solar day. Holding it down will produce the same effect (without the date/time window getting in the way). You can also speed up time incrementally (up to ludicrous speed) using the "L" key. (The "J" key slows it back down and the "K" key returns to normal speed. Repeated presses of "K" stop and start time.) There are actually a lot of time incrementing shortcut options - and other options in general. You can press "F7" to see a list of all of the shortcut options and assign/change shortcut keys for each one.
