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:

    alt text

    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 Gr internally is the same like pressing Ctrl + Alt. Thus Alt Gr + F is the same as Ctrl + Alt + F what is mapped to Collapse Current Level.

    You should remap Collapse Current Level to another keyboard shortcut.
