Suddenly cannot type [ in Notepad++

Cannot type [ in notepad++. It collapses the current level of code instead - it does the same as Ctrl Alt F. Right bracket ] normally just types it. I have no idea how this happened. It was working well before! Could I do it somehow accidentally? How can I fix this?
I looked into Settings > Shortcut mapper but the mappings of the Collapse function seem allright:
I posted my question here as well, feel free to respond there: https://superuser.com/q/1501006/93604

I guess you use a czech keyboard, don’t you? So, to input
[you have to press
Alt GR + F. Unfortunately
Alt Grinternally is the same like pressing
Ctrl + Alt. Thus
Alt Gr + Fis the same as
Ctrl + Alt + Fwhat is mapped to
Collapse Current Level.
You should remap
Collapse Current Levelto another keyboard shortcut.

Had the same problem today, 07-Dec-2020
Initially thought there was a problem with the Keyboard, or some gaming settings had come on. But found that it was typing normally in every other program.
Finally found the problem. It seems that I had accidentally pressed some key combination that had activated a shortcut that made the file Read-Only.
Fiddling around, found a setting in Edit Menu. And removed the Read only status.
Everything was normal immediately.
