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”.
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.
