Combination of CTRL+SHIFT gives unexpected behavior on a Windows machine

Post by skomdra » 02 Mar 2018, 11:30

Hi,
I run into a bizarre problem, my keyboard shortcuts, combinations of CTRL+SHIFT+F, CTRL+SHIFT+W and CTRL+SHIFT+P will not respond what ever I do. Did any of you guys run into this problem? And moreover, when I set it up, it was working, and it stopped. I had to put my shortcuts on different combinations. This is either a bug, or I don't know what.

EDIT:
it is version 11.08 in the case you wonder, so yes, I have the newest updated version installed.

EDIT #2:
Just to clarify, the problem is not with the keyboard shortcuts dialogue, I checked few times, and shortcuts were assigned just fine, even after restarting. It just didn't work whenever I press the combination. I ended up assigning everything to the SHIFT+KEY and now it works, but it would seriously suck if I can't use the CTRL+SHIFT+Key combination on my system.

Check if there is another utility or application on your machine that is intercepting keyboard shortcuts. I have had this happen several times.

That is probably a good idea. I am not sure where to start with checking though, since Windows is not my primary machine :)

On Windows machines, there is an area in the lower right corner of the taskbar (bottom of the screen) called the tray:

This shows what happens when I click on the upward-pointing arrow on the leftmost part of the tray: the little blue box pops up with more items that might be hidden from view. Each one of these tray items is a utility or program running in the background. By clicking (or right-clicking) them, you can often see what they are, pull up their preferences, or shut them down. That would be my first place to look.

If the answer isn't found there, then you may have to talk to a system administrator about other applications running in the background which could require more technical expertise to disable.

Ok, this is definitely the TVP thing. Now I paid attention and what happens, every time I press together CTRL+SHIFT I have a straight line ruler from the last point. It is useful, of course, sometimes, to make straight polygon lines. But it makes totally useless all the shortcuts which are assigned with the CTRL+SHIFT combination. I am confused. Anyone? The same issue maybe?

this explains it. It is a new feature in 11.08 :D
Features to draw lines with freehand shape have been added:
When using the freehand shape, press CTRL+ SHIFT to be able to draw lines from the last drawn point.
Well. What to do...
Maybe first get out of freehand draw mode

EDIT:
NOPE! It didn't help getting out of freehand draw mode. This new feature makes all the combinations with CTRL+SHIFT completely unusable, which makes me wonder, why then so many default shortcuts use this combo?
It is like a Twilight Zone, am I the only one with this problem?
