Ctrl-c, Ctrl-a, Ctrl-x, Ctrl-p not work any more

Post by tim126 » Wed Oct 15, 2014 8:08 pm

I don't know what I accidentally changed. Now when I select some text, and try to copy it with Ctrl-c, the text will not be copied, but instead there is a small window appears which I don't understand. See screen shot below.

Similarly Ctrl-a for selecting all text, Ctrl-x for cutting selected text, and Ctrl-p for pasting don't work either, and some similar small windows will appear.

i wonder how to make the keys work again? Thanks.

Hi Tim,

there are 2 things I can think of that may cause this:

1. If you have modified your keyboard shortcuts that make use of those keystrokes.
2. You have something else that is running interference. Do you have a new mouse or similar with customizable keystrokes? Sometimes these can cause issues passing the keys.

The quick fix would be, I expect, to use Edit --> Reset all settings to defaults

Do let us know how that goes?

Don't know what happens. After I reboot, the problem went away.
