Ctrl key combination weird behavior

  • For some reason, Ctrl combinations behave strange.

    Here is an example:

    Write “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”.
    Select the word “lazy”.
    Press Ctrl+C.
    Go to the space between “quick” and “brown”.
    Press Ctrl+V and add a space.

    Expected result: “The quick lazy brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”
    Actual result: “The quick lazyv brown fox jumps over the c dog”

    I can give you the debug info.

    This appears even after a reinstall and in the portable version.

    Is this something I accidentally turned on or is this a bug?

  • Then give us the debug info.

    With 7.5.8 32-bit, the sequence you described behaved exactly as expected: there was no extra v pasted, and the original lazy wasn’t overwritten by the c.

    Are you sure your fingers aren’t poorly timeed (isn’t slipping), and you let go of CTRL before the C or V, so it types a C or V afterward your action? that’s what it looks like.

  • (and if isn’t the timing of your fingers, does the same thing happen in windows notepad?)

  • No, and Windows Notepad gives proper results. Actually, somehow it got fixed.

  • Sorry we couldn’t find the root cause, but glad it’s stopped.
