    Keyboard Shortcuts Don't Work

    I am using AMC V5.5 and for some reason my keyboard shortcuts stopped working in the middle of a job.

     

    Generic shortcuts like "v" to splice and "b" to overwrite still work. But none of my modified shortcuts work.

     

    Have I inadvertently turned something on or off? It has really slowed me down today. I have been using AMC for over a year and this has never happened.

    I moved to another machine and the same thing happened? I tried different settings and different projects.

    Or have I done something at a Windows level?

     

    Any help appreciated.

     

    Thanks

    Maybe by accident you have selected the default keyboard at settings?

    Or did you changed the local IF you use a dual language system?

    Re: Keyboard Shortcuts Don't Work

    Hello Jiraffe87,

    Welcome to the Avid Community.

    What country are you in?
    Have you changed the input language?

    If you have changed to a non-english input then you may be having trouble using shortcuts.

    Re: Keyboard Shortcuts Don't Work

    Thanks both. Although I don't think I changed the input language?

    When I go to Keyboard Settings in the Settings tab, there are the usual two options "English (United Kingdom)" and English (United States)".

    I am in England. Is there a way to check the Input Language or does the Keyboard Settings menu detail what language I am working in?

    I'm hoping to avoid a complete re-install of AMC!

    Thanks again.

    Then it is highly unlikely that there is a language input problem.

    It must be somthing else.

    Sorry I haven'y any other suggestions.

    Regards,
    Douglas

    PS. I was thinking "language input" at Windows level. e.g. IME
    Not the keyboard input in MC.

    Yes, I do!

    I have once had trouble with a Logitech mouse.
    There was some setting that got changed so that CTRL and SHFT etc. did not work as expected.
    If you have a Logitech mouse and have recently changed the functions on it, maybe you should try resetting it......    Just another shot in the dark.

    Re: Keyboard Shortcuts Don't Work

    Thanks Douglas. I haven't changed anything mouse related but will check the option to reset nethertheless.

    The only thing I did was update Editshare Connect from v5 to v6.

    I'm at home now but will investigate first thing tomorrow (Monday morning).

    Too early in the morning here!
    Yet another mistake.

    I should have said "Logitech Keyboard"

    FWIW After major problems 15 or more years ago with Avid and Keyboard language (Mac based at the time) I have always set both OS and Avid language and KB settings to English US. Probably not necessary these days but why break a habit having not had any Avid keyboard related issues since adopting this policy.

    Make sure the site settings dialed keyboard settings, and possibly remove it. Then the dialogue would disappear.

    Thanks Andrew. Will employ this practice from now on as a precaution.

    Re: Keyboard Shortcuts Don't Work

    I figured it out. In the settings tab with the Keyboard options "English (United Kingdom)", "English (United States)" there was also a new option of "Untitled", which had a tick to the left of it. The Avids had defaulted to this somehow.

    I simply chose the United Kingdom option and all of my shortcuts were recognised again.

    Not sure how this happened though? Hmm...
